Agreed.  I was referring to the common question on MTA support lists 
along the lines of "Why is <MTA name> sending emails out as 
'<user>@<host>.<domain>.<tld>' and not '<user>@<domain>.<tld>' like it 
should be?".  In this case, it is indeed an MTA mis-configuration on 
their ends, automatically adding the (incorrect) host / domain name to 
uncanonical sending email addresses.

Grant. . . .
