Default domain in sendmail when using cyrus virtdomains

Hi all,

I'm in the process of setting up a new mail server with Cyrus IMAP 2.2.2 to
use the virtual domains feature. I'm using sendmail as the MTA, and this is
working fine when the email address is fully qualified.

What I would like to be able to do is set a default domain in sendmail so
that any unqualified email addresses have a default domain attached rather
than the host name of the server. This would be especially helpful in our
alias file which is quite large. The alias file would be much easier to
manage if we didn't have to put after each name!

If anyone knows of a way to do this, please let me know.
