In your case, since it's a "dummy address", it probably doesn't mean
the DontProbeInterfaces set, and no "support" added, you would get a
"mail loops back to me" error instead of local delivery. You can
probably live with that:-), if not you can just add [10.64.64.64]
(including the [brackets]) to /etc/mail/local-host-names, which will
create the "support".
In the general case it is more important though, i.e. where you
actually want to handle mail addressed to "additional" IP addresses, or
more importantly their corresponding names (sendmail's lookup for which
was what caused your problem), you need to arrange it "manually" since
you've turned off sendmail's automatic adding of them to class w.

Ah, OK, that might be another side effect, which doesn't "normally"
occur I think. To determine exactly what is happening would require that
you be a little more precise though - i.e. in what situation does it
occur (i.e. how are you sending mail), and the *verbatim* error message
as well as ditto log entries.

No, that doesn't work, and even if it did it wouldn't have any effect,
since that "rule" is in effect anyway. Sendmail can only complain about
things it sees, and since it will never look for "$=w" in the access map
it won't complain...

No, the DAEMON_OPTIONS isn't really relevant here.
