sendmail makes my head spin :-)

    While my memory of sendmail has long since been garbage collected,
it's likely that sendmail calls this a "mailertable".  Search for it
in the current configuration docs.

    Postfix will happily do stuff like by way of a transport table.
You have something like:

transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport

in postfix's, and then the transport map contains entries
like:		smtp:[]

See the manpage transport(5) for the precise details of the table
