The unamimous answer is to equate the DM entry
(masquerading) with your domain name in your file; stop and start sendmail. I have
tried it and it worked
Thanks to many respondents who were quick to point
this out.

There is one slight problem that I found out:
Maquerading only change the From  line and the
"Reply to" line in the header. It does *not* change
the "to" line. So if I send mail to
I still see the on the
"to" line in my email.
