I'm having a problem with my sendmail configuration that I can't
figure out, and I'm hoping somebody here will be able to help me.
I've been having mail bounced from my server lately, and so I went to
the MX-verify CGI at www.zmailer.org/mxverify.html to see what was
going on. I initially suspected an mx problem because I am using
dynamic dns via dyndns.org.
I'll give you an excerpt from the reply:
220 lupercalia.net ESMTP Sendmail 8.9.3/8.8.7; Tue, 5 Dec 2000
250 lupercalia.net Hello nic. (yada yada) please to meet you
554 buildaddr: no host
You really should go to www.zmailer.org/mxverify.html and put in my
domain name, lupercalia.net, to see the entire message.
I looked at the sendmail source and found the relevant code, but was
mystified. I don't know what's going on.
Can anybody help? Please?
Oh, and PLEASE CC TO DCMERRILL at MINDSPRING.COM
