I don't use these, and I really need 127.0.0.1 to keep the server load 
down, as it generally forwards all mail to the server where our internal 
users retrieve their e-mail (I have all the valid users available at this 
machine, though).  With sendmail 8.12.x, this means that it is re-sent 
via SMTP, and I don't want to take any time to do any scanning.
