mdaemon isn't totally broken ;) at least it doesn't destroy headers like
some *cough* exchange *cough* mailservers do.

What's wrong with having the sendmail server deliver via SMTP to the
mdaemon server? Mdaemon tries all kinds of ways to be clever at parsing
email from a collective POP box to deduce the correct recipient, but is
always going to be hindered by the intrisic brokenness of the method. It
deals with SMTP perfectly well, however.
