[Mailman-Users] Mailman and Sendmail debugging questions

I have added the suggested line and the mail seems to be hitting Mailman now.  However, the mail is bouncing.  I look in the Mailman smtp log file and it seems to be generating 4 emails like I expect for the 4 users of the testlist mailing list (A one line entry in file about something sent to 4 users, I forget the syntax now) however they are going to testlist-bounces at domain.gov not user1 at domain.gov, user2 at domain.gov, user3 at domain.gov, and user4 at domain.gov (This info seen in the /var/logs/maillog file).  What am I doing wrong?

There are a couple of ways to do this with sendmail. If you have
mailertable support, you can add a rule to your mailertable like:

domain.gov local:

Or, perhaps, you can add domain.gov to sendmail's 'local-host-names' file.
