Unable to validate new e-mail address

I tried several times to change my e-mail address. The new one is exactly the same as the old one except for the domain. The new one is valid, I have been using it for more than 4 years and in fact all of the mail sent to the old one is being forwarded to the new one. In spite of that, I never receive a verification e-mail sent to the new address and am forced to change it back if I actually want to post to the TCF.

It's usually a spam filter (either yours or your ISP's). I changed it and will now reply to your PM which should also send an email.

My server does not like tivocommunity.com emails. When inbound email comes in this is what the "HELO" looks like:

72.9.159.160.tailormadeservers.com (tivocommunity.com [72.9.159.160])

My server does a lookup on "72.9.159.160.tailormadeservers.com", finds an invalid hostname, and rejects the email:

$ nslookup 72.9.159.160.tailormadeservers.com

** server can't find 72.9.159.160.tailormadeservers.com: NXDOMAIN


I had to fuss with my Postfix filters to allow inbound email -- it had nothing to do with spam filtering in my case.
