Yeh!  I'm looking forward to see it.

jhay>         inet6 3ffe:2900:fffa:4:: prefixlen 64 anycast 
jhay>         ether 00:00:e8:15:db:ed

jhay>         supported media: 100baseTX <full-duplex> 100baseTX 10base2/BNC 
10baseT/UTP <full-duplex> 10baseT/UTP

I don't see any configuration problem here.  As that machine is
a router, anycast address has been assigned.  (RFC2373)
I simply registered PTR RRs of my anycast addresses into DNS.
It may be good idea that sendmail checks for anycast address.
