	It's human readable, though a smart human doesn't try to modify it
(relying on the m4 files and the files that sendmail.cf refrences).
Grepping your sendmail.cf file like I suggested should return a single
line. Works on RedHat and Debian, and Solaris, and FreeBSD. The file it
returns is where you need to put the domain you want to recieve mail for.

# grep ^Fw /etc/mail/sendmail.cf 
Fw-o /etc/mail/local-host-names
