spamassassin-procmail-sendmail problem

I have a fresh CentOS 5 box running sendmail-procmail-spamassassin combo for email in a single domain. Everything is running ok with the exception of the messages marked as spam. I would love for them to go to a mailbox on the local system so that they can be reviewd or retrived by the local admin in case of a mix up. I simply cannot get them to go. This is the last line of the maillog after spamass* has marked the message and handed back to sendmail.

dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by []

I have tried sending to, spam@localhost.localdomain, spam@, and spam@

what would make sendmail refuse to send mail to a local user ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Some More Info

Feb 21 11:34:50 webmail sendmail[15510]: m1LHYo7h015510:, ctladdr=dougi (537/537), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=33266, relay=[] [], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by []

That is a full line from the maillog as snedmail is asked to forward the marked message to the system's spam mailbox.

| /usr/bin/spamc
* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes

the text above is my procmailrc file.

Any help would be appreciated.



sendmail, spamassassin
