Re: some email won't go...

Does it fail using the fully qualified domain name?  I am not very familier
with "other" sendmail programs and could not tell if your config is using
sendmail...  If so, check your sendmail.cf file and make sure you have an
alias for the receiving machine as 'sewage' without any domain.
