Just an FYI to the original poster, the new patch does not require the

The new patch does not require the hostname, and if present, authentication
will simply fail, as is the case here.
Uhh, no. Try it yourself and check the cert.org lists. Having the host
name with the new patch makes you an open relay. I'll admit I'm wrong

years ago. Any signature will match and mail will be relayed.
