Having problem instructing sendmail to read from mailertable.
Here is what my /etc/ reads

Kmailertable hash -o /etc/mail/mailertable

Then in /etc/mail/ I have

ls /etc/mail/mailertable*


Further in my /etc/mail/mailertable I have

I have re-hashed it (read later why not dbm format) and
I still see sendmail is using DNS mx records, yielding errors.
My understanding was mailertable should override what DNS says so
mush as routing is concern.

What Rule-sets do I run to check this out...

As for why not dbm, when I run 'makemap dbm' I get an error message
from makemap(1) saying that dbm is not supported in this version.
So why did NetBSD Gods include that as the default in
is beyond me.
