Thanks, that was it. mydomain was set to cc.ucf.edu. The reason I needed this,
was to keep the smail machines happy, they want to validate the addresses on
the mail from: command. (This is on purpose, btw). Now all I have to do, before
I put zmailer into production, is to look at how I can keep it from being an
smtp gateway to off-campus (not in our domain) hosts.
