Not sure why it would do that. Have you tried with other addresses in
place of "me at d2.com"?
You might also want to add a "not-deliver" onto the long line in that
ruleset too, or else it will still try to deliver to me at d1.com as well.
Your "To: default deliver" line should be "FromOrTo: default deliver" as
