Sometimes the simplest solutions are over looked. It didn't even occur
to me that they were just not relaying other domains. The only reason I
had setup sendmail to do relaying was because our previous ISP would not
allow outgoing emails that were not relayed through their SMTP server.
With covad I don't even need to bother with relaying and can make the
linux box send the emails out directly. Problem Solved!!
Thanks for helping to point my brain in the right direction!
