Resend - Router rejection problems

I'm hoping someone can shed a little light on this problem for me.  At the
least can I get a referral as to where to do the investigation on my own?  I
implemented rejection for names not defined for a domain and now this seems
to corrupt the router for messages sent by valid members of the domain.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Subject: Router rejection corrupts syslog and header

Greetings.  I recently implemented router rejection for invalid addresses on
inbound messages.  The rejection process appears to work correctly.  In the
process, however, I'm experiencing a couple unexpected side effects.  First,
router logging to syslog for messages sent by users in the domain in
incorrectly shows the sender as <>, while showing the recipient correctly.
Second, and more important, this loss of the sender's address seems to also
happening on the envelope because if the receiving system attempts to return
message as undeliverable it fails when it gets to my server as also

My hope is I have missed a configuration step and someone will enlighten me!

I'm running 2.99.54 on Debian Linux.  For clarity, here is an example of the
entries I made:

in routes
Domain1.com               error!nosuchuser

in fqdnaliases
user1@Domain1.com:        user1
user2@Domain1.com:        user2
