Submitter is rejecting mail from gnats:

501-(Note: This SMTP response message has multiple lines.)
501-A fatal error has been encountered while validating the HELO host name
501-given as ''.
501-Your connection from, using the remote address
501-[], has been rejected.
501-The reason given was:
501-     the domain name '' is a CNAME not a hostname (a
501-     hostname must resolve to an A record, see RFC 1123 Section 5.2.2 and
501-     5.2.5, RFC 2821 Section 4.1.4; and RFC 2181 Section 10.2) 
501  (If this last line is all you see then your mailer is broken.)

Without e-mail communications it is impossible to resolve problems or work
with gnats effectively.

(Furthermore, this reasoning is entirely spurious. Please fix your mailer.)
