I have recently seen a couple of sendmail systems that do succumb to
this sort of stupidity. If the remote end says "buildaddr: no host"
then it is sendmail.
I have the "privilege" that one of these stupid systems that I have
to deal with is the head office of the company where I work. They
hosed their sendmail after I told them that they were in ORBS. For the
past month I have been trying to tell them that their system is broken,
but I have not gotten any results so far :-(
So, it may be getting more frequent than you expect...
