Is this the correct format?

Hmm... that sounds like normal behavior to me.  If you serve the
domain and the user doesn't exist, sendmail should correctly
reject mail.

You need to be more specific.  With "hosted" do you mean that the name
server for aphroland.org is running on galactica?  What do you mean by
the latter ".. while the MX is on bebo"?

Is there any particular reason, why you don't just give me the MX
records and the sendmail config?
