Sendmail replacing from email address on incoming emails

Sendmail replacing from email address on incoming emails

Sendmail replacing from email address on incoming emails

Running Fedora Core 14.
I have several virtual users set up in virtusertable and will use an example of the problem I am having.

I have the following domains set up on my server:


The accounts for goodstuff.us are set up with us appended to them.  Any email that comes in for that user is then sent to the email address with us appended... for example

karen@goodstuff.us is sent to the account karenus

When an email from that user comes into the system, sendmail is replacing the from email address 'karen@goodstuff.us' with 'karen@goodstuff.com so when some replies to that email it goes the wrong address.  The main server is set up as goodstuff.com.
Is this a DNS issue?  Can anyone tell me how to fix it?
