Are you sure it wasn't mx1.freebsd.org? And are you mangling
my.mywebsite.com or is that really the hostname with which your server
is configured to EHLO/HELO? The FreeBSD MXs also run Postfix and
employ the reject_unknown_helo_hostname restriction; it rejects HELO
and EHLO hostnames that lack DNS A or MX records. Your log excerpt
looks suspicious because my.mywebsite.com does have a valid DNS A
my.mywebsite.com. 96 IN A 22.214.171.124
Yes, but this is a bit weird.
Macintosh:~ pauls$ telnet my.mywebsite.com 25
Connected to nullmx.mywebsite.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 nullmx SMTP
Connection closed by foreign host
Why "nullmx.mywebsite.com"? Which resolves to an entirely different IP
Macintosh:~ pauls$ dig +short nullmx.mywebsite.com
But it *is* the MX for that domain.
Macintosh:~ pauls$ dig -t MX mywebsite.com

So I've got no idea why he's having this problem, unless it's because the
MX record doesn't point to my.mywebsite.com.
