It's odd actually, Sendmail started kicking up a fuss about name lookups
too, with "ip name lookup failed" errors, but that was simply because I
hadn't added the domain to local-host-names (or whatever it's called these
days). I say odd because Sendmail normally fires back the "loops back to me"
error when that happens. That's just a coinkadink though I reckon. This FTP
thing is getting on my wick though.
