Then why does it not occur in 8.12.9? If I start my 8.12.9 sendmail, it does
NOT say "may be forged". Did something change in-between versions?

Here is why I think it seems related to Verisign somehow:

asarian-host: {root} % nslookup my-xp-machine.net
Name:    my-xp-machine.net

Maybe 8.12.10 picks up on the IP-mismatch? But that still does not explain
why my 8.12.9 sendmail does not say "may be forged". And if I change
/etc/hosts to have called "my-xp-machine.ORG", then the error
goes away, in 8.12.10 too!
