The problem is the sendmail box holds no mail accounts at all.  (Except for
root, etc)  All of the mail is routed to internal mail servers using the
mailertable file.

My understanding of the alias file is that you can redirect mail intended
for a local user to an external user.  For example if I wanted all mail for
root to be sent to an address on another server.

I think it should work in /etc/aliases.

Don't forget to run newaliases after modifying the file.
