Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4863
The sendmail.cf that comes with RH6.0 causes sendmail -bt to report that *EVERYTHING* is delivered via the local mailer

sendmail on RH6.0 seems to work fine sending mail, but when
one uses sendmail -bt to test an address:
sendmail reports that the mail is delivered locally. This
should not be the case, and cannot be the case as mail is
actually going through. (SMTP mail, that is) I'm trying to
be sure that certain customers of mine who use UUCP will
have their mail routed correctly through sendmail, but
sendmail -bt reports that everything is routed locally,
which makes things very hard to debug. :)
I've always used 0 to parse addresses when debugging sendmail.
Someone recently informed me of the /parse routine in sendmail -bt. I
tried /parse and things worked fine.
I always thought that ruleset 3 was the one that was handling the
actual resolving to what mailer should be used for a particular
address, and ruleset 0 was only processing the final step of delivery.
Anyway, things now seem to work fin, bug closed.
