For those of us who use the original Sendmail intead of Postfix, could you 
elaborate? That looks like a Postfix config file from what I remember of 
others talking about it. "Real" sendmail.cf is a very arcane language of 
rules for translating one kind of address to another, with lots of hacks to 
produce side effects like DNS lookups for RBL's and ultimately effect 
delivery. It's so arcane that no one can read it anymore and the authors 
use a higher-level language (sendmail.mc) that gets translated to the final 
version with a library of m4 macros.

As a wild guess, I'd translate that to mean that all mail to bfhq at ea.com 
gets sent to the bit bucket.
