Greg, you need to check your mailer's setup:
... while talking to mail.weird.com.:
>>> HELO duh.org
<<< 501 EHLO requires a valid host name as operand: 'duh.org' rejected from like.duh.org remote address [126.96.36.199]: Unknown host.
554 <email@example.com>... Service unavailable
If you check DNS records, you'll see that duh.org has a perfectly valid MX
address, even though it has no A record. "Bzzzt, try again!"
Considering that it bounced my response to your bug response, I hope you
either got the mail through this list, or you can just go query the PR for
it. I'm too tired tonight to deal with this bogosity.
