I continued building the server installing and configuring the packages
quota, harden and bastille. strange enough i am now not able to
reproduce the behaviour of double reception.
before the simple command line
sendmail user1 at virtualdomain1.net \
caused this user having the mail in his inbox twice,
now it doesnt.
i have to rollback and will try to reproduce this behaviour and keep you
