Subject: Mailing list seems broken
I've just got a bounce from an message I sent to the mailing list a while ago, it says:-

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:
    SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<>:
    host []: 450 4.7.1 Client host rejected:
    cannot find your hostname, []:
    retry timeout exceeded

Perhaps this is why:
# nslookup
   ** server can't find NXDOMAIN
The reported address is always in reverse, as above.

Your mailserver is missing a reverse DNS entry (PTR). You will have problems sending from that host for a lot of other mail servers as well.
Read this if you don't get any useful answers.
