I am running a 2.2 branch installation. I cannot find appropriate 
documentation concerning virtual domain support and how to configure the 
MTA under the doc/ directory! Is the documentation available in cvs ? I 
will have to change some things in my sendmail installation to get 
sendmail working with domains in local-user names. What I have running 
right now is working but with the cost of loosing the ability of 
configuring catchall accounts in virtusertable which would end up in 
some virtusertable-entry like:

@domain.tld    account at domain.tld

which actually is a recursion! Also aliases are no longer expanded 
because after ending virtusertable-processing there will not be local 
users without a @domain.tld part. An alias-entry like:

account at domain.tld    account2 at otherdomain.tld, account at domain.tld

is not possible at all! So what I will try to do is an extension of the 
proto.m4 to be able to finish up virtusertable with entries for which an 
alias-entry exists without @domain.tld ! If there are some hints in the 
documentation it would be great if you could point me somewhere....
