I removed the leading dot in the mailertable file, re-ran the makemap
command and got the same results.
Any other suggestions?

Just a guess from a tired list reader who really should be doing
something else Friday night. Try adding this line:
Notice no dot first. Also, be careful editing the cf-file directly, you
should edit the mc-file and let make build the cf for you.
