	It depends on what you have stored into  MAILVAR/db/localnames
	file; at nic.funet.fi I have for example:

fiport                  fiport.funet.fi
fiport.bitnet           fiport.funet.fi
fiport.funet.fi         fiport.funet.fi
ftp                     ftp.funet.fi
ftp-test.funet.fi       ftp-test.funet.fi
ftp.funet.fi            ftp.funet.fi
funic                   nic.funet.fi
funic.funet.fi          nic.funet.fi

	That is, if the address has domain: ftp.funet.fi,  then
	processed address will also be  ftp.funet.fi.
	On the other hand, in case of  funic.funet.fi  the outgoing
	name will be nic.funet.fi.
