Hello,

Hope, I understand the problem. Two ways out of the trouble:

  i)	Tell sendmail, that he is not just  flopsy.hobart.tased.edu.au  but
	also  hobart.tased.edu.au  by using a line  "Cwhobart.tased.edu.au"
	in your /etc/sendmail.cf

 ii)	Use sendmail 8.7.1 . There is a mailer flag to supress this
	loop detection (I think it was "k" or "K"...)


Did you post your question to comp.mail.sendmail ?  There the .cf
hackers are at home.	;-)

Regards, Marc.
