It's been along time (like years) since I worked with 8.11.x of sendmail.
Hopefully, what I showed in my previous post will work with the 8.11.x

When you get this problem sorted out, I would strongly suggest that you
consider upgrading to a 8.12.x version of sendmail for redhat 7.3. (see

All the above domain names should force sendmail to select the local mailer.
i.e. procmail

bob neidorff com will be forwarded to ti.com
mark neidorff com should use the mailbox mark.

BTW: You shouldn't need the second virtual unless your login/mailbox is
different than mark. You already have neidorff.com listed in

The above Cwneidorff.com is probably not be needed, since you have
neidorff.com listed in /etc/mail/local-host-names. Which is referenced by

Available features are:
use_cw_file     Read the file /etc/mail/local-host-names file to get
                alternate names for this host.  This might be used if you
                were on a host that MXed for a dynamic set of other hosts.
                If the set is static, just including the line "Cw<name1>
                <name2> ..." (where the names are fully qualified domain
                names) is probably superior.  The actual filename can be
                overridden by redefining confCW_FILE.
