Sendmail User unknown


I have sendmail setup and it works fine sending emails to outside email addresses. When I try and send email to our internal groupwise server the mail never gets there and I get an error message in the log user unknown.

Anyone got any ideas on how to fix this.

Thanks.

Hi,

I guess sendmail tries to deliver message locally.
What gives:
Code:
sendmail -bv user@domain.com
