yes. All are something.whizzird.net. And all have the appropriate /etc/hosts
entries to back that up.

yes. Mail goes to email@example.com, which is not understood.

I was thinking any mail internal to the network. But even cron mail is not
delivered on the debian boxes. I'd like somebody on any box to be able to send
mail to 'jason' and have it automatically get the '@whizzird.net' added on
(which would send it to the server box and all would be good).
