Good thinking, but I got rid of the shim, typed a test message with the Mail command, same result:

Perhaps the A-labels in the domain name are confusing it?

In any event, I think you will find that expecting the users to tell
you when a message needs EAI handling rather than figuring it out when
it does the submission cleanup will cause endless pain. Neither
postfix nor exim have anything like the -U flag.

R's,
