When I rebuild the new server the sendmail daemon was announcing in HELO (or the more modern EHLO) that the server was called localhost.localdomain. Now this really doesnt mean much, as it is used only in the header info, but there is an RFC which says this is bad.

As a result of this CBL blocked me (
I am a great fan on antispam listings, so I cannot really complain much...
Anyway, I have reconfigured the server and am now unlisted. Hopefully the servers which use that list will update the info soon.
In the interim you may be unable to receive emails from me.
I will keep my eye on the situation for a few days.
