Sendmail adds "relay" to the recipient address.

Sendmail adds "relay" to the recipient address.

The previous server its configured to relay to another smtp server, and it works fine.

But with the new server we have a problem.. All mails appears to be delivered at the mail.log, but running sendmail in verbose mode, shows that the program is adding the word "relay" to the recipient address:

# /usr/sbin/sendmail -v
. Connecting to relay via relay...

Could anyone help?

Thanks in advance.
