Thanks Andrei,
I'm not a Sendmail guru by any means (and don't intend to be either BTW ;))
so the reminder to makemap was helpful, I probably would have forgotten and
had to chase that one down. :) I thought about the virtuser-domain question
after I posted and it just made sense that I shouldn't have to add it for
the reason you suggested. I do have my other domains in there because I use
virtuser for recipient verification to the Exchange box. 

We don't process that much mail (see my other post to Jules) and for now I'm
just forwarding two accounts over to that server to assess viability for our
shop. It's working fine now and we will be looking in on it throughout the
day and trying to see how we're going to sell it to the PHB.

Thanks again for your input and help,
