One of two things. Assuming DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST is not 'snoopy.tblc.org'
either the host name part of the web_page_url attribute of the bentest
list when looked up in the VIRTUAL_HOSTS dictionary (add_virtualhost)
returns 'snoopy.tblc.org' or your outgoing MTA is changing the domain
for the outside world.
