cyrusv2d mailer unlike cyrusv2 does not strip recipient domain in its 
recipient parsing rule sets
* you use cyrusv2d as local mailer replacement (confLOCAL_MAILER)
* generated from m4 files strips recipient's 
domain before passing recipient address to local mailer (or its replacement)

You may use "sticky hub" version of RTCyrus2 to fix it

I hope I will publish soon a method for making mailertable process 
recipients in local email domains.
