Question Sendmail - one user getting all mail


Hi,

I am running sendmail that comes with Red Hat 8. We require managing email POP accounts for lots of domains belonging to our clients. As such, I have placed the entries for users into the /etc/mail/virtusertable file. I have then run a makemap hash virtusertable.db < virtusertable and restarted sendmail.

All user accounts have been created using the Red hat User Manager (GUI).

So, if I have the following user accounts
foo_rob
foo_test1
foo_test2

and also add the following into /etc/mail/virtusertable
rob@foo.com foo_rob
test1@foo.com foo_test1
test2@foo.com foo_test2

All of the mail for the domain foo.com comes to foo_rob? I even tried adding the following entry at the end of virtusertable
@foo.com error:nouser User address is not valid

If I send an email to joe@foo.com even though this account does not exist it comes to rob@foo.com!!! There is nothing in the aliases pointing to foo_rob and I am using the default sendmail.cf
configuration.

Has anybody seen anything like this before?
