Adding *senders = +local_domains* didn't work, and in the log it said:
*unknown named address list "+local_domains"
*
Then I discovered that sender = is expecting a full address, not just a
domain (made sense when I thought about it) so I added *@ to it, and it
works as anticipated!

domains = ! +local_domains
senders = *@+local_domains

I'm still curious if this code is likely to produce any other unexpected
results in logic as far as affecting mail routes the way I have desired.

Thoughts, anyone?

Thanks for the hints!
