mail "ping" attempt

Hi Giorgos,

Thanks for your response.  We deal with a lot places and lots of email.
This is the first time this problem has come up.  Very curious, but I'm
hoping you get this and it's fixed.

    The e-mail system was unable to deliver the message, but did not
report a specific reason.  Check the address and try again.  If it still
fails, contact your system administrator.
    <exchange.katana.local #4.0.0 smtp;450 <exchange.katana.local>: Helo
command rejected: Host not found>

Your mail system is not set up properly.  It tries to send email messages to
the FreeBSD.org domain with an envelope address whose domain (shown above as
``exchange.katana.local'') does not resolve to an IP address.

If you need help with configuring your mail system to ``masquerade''
internal addresses to real-world addresses, that are acceptable as
envelope-from addresses by FreeBSD.org, don't hesitate to contact me
directly, in one of my non-FreeBSD addresses:
