Yes, it is the name of my XP machine within the network. :)

I do not quite understand this. Why would it not say "may be forged" when de
domain name ends in .org?

At any rate, I installed 8.12.10 now, changed the name of my XP machine to
end in .org; and, for the rest, everything seems to work wonderfully. So,
whatever that small change between versions may have been, it must be a
minor thing. I just wanted to make sure I had not compiled the new sendmail
horribly wrong. Everything is ok now. :)

Thanks for your help,
