Actually, this is a really weird little matter of configuration.  SF now 
runs their SMTP server on a machine called "localhost" which doesn't appear 
to be the machine the CVS server is running on.

This is an issue that came up for Python some time ago (a month ago, 
perhaps?), and was resolved for several projects.  I made a pass over all 
the syncmail-using project I had checkouts of and made the change in 
syncmail, but CVS was pretty much down by the time I'd done that, so none 
of that got checked in.  (This was when they were syncing data to new CVS 
servers, so it was down for days, not hours.)

I've committed the change for PyXML now, so things should be working again.  
The error only affected the generation of the checkin emails, not the 
actual checkin.  Thanks for bringing this back to my attention!
