Markus is spot on.
My mail server does reverse lookups to see if the mail server is real or 
not...in your case it would reject it since the mail server sending it 
does not equal what the look up says.

these rejects are used to prevent spammers. And they also teach us how 
to set up mail servers correctly. Learning curve, but it is for the best.
