    This is so mail sent from outside the server to will
    be delivered to users. (we currently have mail for routed
    to our existing exchange server until we convert to this new server).

    outside sent to gets rejected as an unknown user.

    If however I add a second entry to virtual:


    Then it works fine, mail from outside to gets
    routed to all the users in the list. My question is why can I sent
    directly to from the outside but not to
     without the extra mapping.
