I did not receive the "click here to activate your account" email. I had to go to nerdy extremes to get it from the logs.
I'm just mentioning a configuration issue that has caused me an issue and maybe affects others.
Yep. Me too. My nerdy extreme was to google-fu a mod's email address and contact them directly.

I think thehemi has identified the problem. Should be an easy fix.

Deferred: 450 4.1.8 <texaschl@server.texaschlforum.com>: Sender address rejected: Domain not found

# nslookup server.texaschlforum.com 8.8.8.8
Server: 8.8.8.8
Address: 8.8.8.8#53
** server can't find server.texaschlforum.com: NXDOMAIN
I have never gotten an email from this forum either, but I never bothered to track it down. Makes sense that receiving mail server might do an nslookup on the "from" field to verify that the address is valid.
server.texaschlforum.com does not resolve
texaschlforum.com does resolve

Is it possible that adding "server." to the from field in automatic emails sent from texaschlforum.com causes my mail server to reject the message because the server doesn't resolve?
