Have you run a test on the user address (for example):


$ sendmail -bt  [ENTER]

ADDRESS TEST MODE (ruleset 3 NOT automatically invoked)
Enter <ruleset> <address>
> 3,0  [ENTER]

... diagnostic output ...

This will give you good clues as to how Sendmail will route your email for this address. Also make sure that all your local domains are included in the "local-host-names" file and that appropriate rules are in the access database.

Also, Sendmail requires DNS to be working. You don't have to have a MX record but the DNS lookups for your servers must be working. You can turn this off but compiling a new file with the "nodns" feature.
