I'm the mail admin for mooli.org.uk. You basically fell foul of some sanity
checking. The main one appears to be that (which I assume to
be your mail exchanger host, though there is no MX pointing at it) has
broken reverse DNS.

You might like to get that fixed, it'll be affecting a lot of other things
too, such as IRC and FTP. I suggest putting an explicit MX record in the
zone for baugh.org too - relying on an A record just seems wrong to me, even
if the RFCs permit it.

shirker at jml.net, IIRC.

A successful sysadmin must accept no limits on his laziness.
