Ever since the forums were restored after the hack, email from the server has been using 'daemon@bitcointalk.xta.net' for the envelope sender.  bitcointalk.xta.net doesn't exist, so mail is getting rejected, probably for a lot of people who want to do password resets, new registration, etc.  Before the hack the sender was 'www-data@bitcointalk.org'.

Here's someone else having trouble:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=43515.0

It's caused me to go blind. I don't see a single post report or PM notification anymore.

I'll ask MagicalTux to take a look.

Strange that your email service would simply throw away these emails. Mine doesn't even increase the spam score.

After you fix this, I'm afraid that you'll have to re-send that massive notification email, because if I didn't get it, I bet a bunch of other people didn't either.

I run my own so I just have it whitelisted for now.  In my case it wasn't outright rejecting, but this was a very popular anti-spam measure before scoring techniques became popular, and it's still pretty common since it's easy and effective.

Thanks for looking into it!

I'm not going to resend it. Probably many more people would receive it twice than would never receive it.

C'mon.. Fix this. This is pretty basic admin stuff.
People shouldn't have to whitelist for shit like this.

Received: from bitcointalk.xta.net (bitcointalk.org [50.97.137.52]) by mail........... (Postfix) with ESMTP id 39519681A4 for <................>; Mon, 12 Sep 2011 16:46:15 +0000 (UTC)

Looks like the server's hostname is bitcointalk.xta.net rather than bitcointalk.org. Easy fix.
