Sendmail adding .org after some addresses
We run a mailing list and on our server sendmail is adding .org after some addresses, e.g. the first and third entries below in the process listing:
Could this be related to the "subdomain name $m = org" as in the sendmail config below? If so, why does it adds .org only to some addresses?

root 31759 0.0 0.1 11752 7008 ? Ss Sep23 0:00 sendmail: ./p8NITSQI029831 wrightinst.edu.org.: user open
If this is the problem, how do I fix this? We have a single host in our organization, so it's not host1.foobar.org, host2.foobar.org. It's just foobar.org.

(subdomain name) $m = org
(node name) $k = foobar.org
Also, some sendmail processes have been around for more than two days (e.g. the first process in the process listing above). How do I make sure that a process does its job and not hangs around.
Thanks for your help!
