After I installed the new sendmail 8.13 It seems to be ignoring the
mailertable feature and not pushing the email to the correct ip. My maillog
is telling me that it is trying to push the email to the domain again which
just loops it back to itself. Maillog is showing the ip address of the
domain instead of the mailserver specified in the mailertable. Any reason
why this could be happening? mailertable reads bentecmed.com

I used the command makemap hash /etc/mail/mailertable <

exactly sure what the problem is.
