I do not know why on earth you are testing this crap using a public mailing list, rather than mailing an account at Gmail or Hotmail or some such. Sorry to sound sour about it, but it's rude. The error you're receiving would be because your mail server during the SMTP handshake is saying "HELO i.am.bob" and the remote SMTP server attempts to resolve i.am.bob but cannot. By "i.am.bob", I *literally* mean "i.am.bob". If you're forwarding mail around on a private network on your LAN, your computer probably thinks its hostname is "myfreebsdbox.my.lan", which isn't a publicly-resolvable hostname. There are ways in sendmail and postfix to solve this problem. -- | Jeremy Chadwick jdc at parodius.com | | Parodius Networking http://www.parodius.com/ | | UNIX Systems Administrator Mountain View, CA, USA | | Making life hard for others since 1977.
