First of all, please don't send my private email back to a public
forum.  That is incredibly rude.

No, I don't use sendmail.  My incoming mail is handled by postfix.  In
your example above, yes, the mail would go to domain.com.  This has
never bothered me, and if it did I'm sure I could reconfigure postfix
(or sendmail) to only allow email to the list if it was sent to the
correct domain.
