Hi Gene,

I found a logical flow in this my deduction:

In fact, the verbose output I was talking about had been produced by
running mail from the command line, so it is irrelevant in this case.
Which means we actually do not know to whom the original submission
was directed.  Can you show me the contents of the message that was
delivered to /var/mail/amanda?

No, it is used for each local delivery, as the log excerpts show. 
The sensible-mda utility which is set as MDA in your sendmail.cf
invokes it.

Thanks. Sendmail configuration consists of several files, therefore I
would need the contents of the following files in addition:

1. /etc/mail/local-host-names
2. /etc/mail/aliases
3. /etc/mail/access
