Judging from the overly enthusiastic response, no one knew the
answer. I just figured out the solution so I'm posting it for the
benefit of those who actually go through the mailing list archives
searching for answers (like I do).
The solution was to edit the /etc/smail/routers file and add
under the inet_hosts heading. I don't know why the qualify file
didn't do the trick.
