I am writing a script for adding hosted domains to our server.
When I add a hosted domain, I need to add it to the sendmails virtusertable
and local-host-names.

I have tried to use /etc/init.d/MailScanner reload but this does not rebuild
the virtusertable.db file.

What is the correct way to do this ?
