Hi Guys,

I am sure I am missing something small here.

I have a ms box that is currently supporting  domains.

I added a new domain to my MS box and have setup a mail server inside 
the network to receive mail for this domain.

the mail server side works as I have successfully sent an email to the 
users connecting directly to the smtp agent on the mail server.

I am running ms on suse 9.2  with sendmail.

i have added the the domain and destination to the mailertable file.
domain.com           esmtp:[]

I have added it to the relayed domains file.

And restarted the server. but when I send an email with telnet to the ms 
box it gets sent to the internet to the customers current mail system 
and not to the new server.
i want to test this situation before I change the customers mx records 
to make sure it works ok.

What have I done wrong?

please let me know what other info is needed to help diagnose this issue.
