urr.  you mention it doesnt deliver mail to local users.  so where
does it deliver mail to?  from your description, mail will *have* to
be delivered locally as you have both domains pointed to that one it wouldnt make sense to have a virtusertable unless you
wanted to deliver the mail somewhere else, hence the loop errors.

it might be better to use /etc/mail/domaintable for what you are
doing, simple domain remapping.
