Correct ... the Info user doesn't exist, but then it doesn't revert to
the SHAREDSPAM user, it reverts to root ... I'll add the flag and repost

Could you add "-d rcpt" to your spamass-milter commandline and send
another test message?  I'm interested in the sendmail -bv output, what
the incoming address was, and what you expected it to be.  It seems to
have decided the user "info" was the correct one, which doesn't
correspond with a local user on your system.
