[Mimedefang] Recipient address logging question

Hi all,
Got a question that I hope I can get some help with

All of our servers run a script hourly that generates an email.
Our mimedefang ( running on mx.example.com ) processes it and generates
a log entry similar to the line below

Jul  6 18:02:38 mx mimedefang.pl[10170]:
MDLOG,q66I24Vw029958,mail_in,,,<logcheck at server4.example.com>,<noc at example.com>,server4.example.com
2012-07-06 18:02 System Events

Recently we added a new server and have encountered an anomaly in the
way mimedefang is logging messages from it.

Jul  6 18:02:39 mx mimedefang.pl[10170]:
MDLOG,q66I2WZd030078,mail_in,,,<logcheck at server7.example.com>,<noc at mx.example.com>,cs7.example.com
2012-07-06 18:02 System Events

The recipient address is appearing as noc at mx.example.com instead of
noc at example.com in the mimedefang logs.

Initially we though that something was wrong with the sendmail config on
the new server, but it appears to be configured identically as the
existing servers, so I currently have no clue what is causing this.

Any ideas?
