Sendmail with two domains


I have configured the sendmail wilth two domains xyz.com and xyz1.com and have configured the DNS for there two domains with two static IP address.

Sendmail is working fine, but if a receiving email is addressed to abc@xyz.com receives not only to abc@xyz.com but it copies to abc@xyz1.com.

I only add the line Cw xyz.com xyz1.com to sendmail.cf file for to obtain this multidomain sendmail server.

How can I avoid this problem of copying the incomming abc@xyz.com mail to account abc@xyz1.com?

Pls let me know the detail procedure?

wouldn't abc@xyz.com and abc@xyz1.com really be the same account?

What happens if abc@xyz.com deletes the mail, is it still in abc@xyz1.com's inbox?

Really if I send a mail addressed to same account (abc@xyz.com to) itself it will receive to abc@xyz.com as well as abc@xyz1.com. This is because the account created in linux machine as abc and sendmail take it as abc for their mailbox.

To prevent this what can I do ? Can I create these mail boxes with the domain name, If it is then Can I get the address as abc@xyz.com & abc@xyz1.com? Is there any other way to prevent this and get two seperate account abc@xyz.com and abc@xyz1.com in sendmail level or POP level ?

Presuming your answer was to be interpreted as a yes:

You could set up one account named abc , and another named abc1. Thereafter you could map the mail to abc@xyz1.com to the user abc1 by adding an entry to /etc/mail/virtusertable.
