It seems to be recognizing the email as local now:
Jan 12 18:57:27 request1 sendmail: q0D1vRSU003015:
to=troytest at mailman.rmtc.fedex.com, ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=00:00:00,
xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30076, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1],
dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (Ok: queued as C7FE237878)
Jan 12 18:57:28 request1 postfix/local: C7FE237878:
to=<troytest at mailman2.rmtc.fedex.com>, relay=local, delay=0.23,
delays=0.07/0/0/0.16, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (delivered to command:
/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post troytest)
No email is coming out though? It should be "expanding" to my email
