Mail relay

If someone has sendmail set up so it will relay, please send me
a private message so I can use your relay to find out how come
__sometimes__ my mail bounces. It is very annoying that I get
a "local configuration error" when the local configuration hasn't
changed for years!

This happens about once a day, with other messages getting through
fine. My guess is that some name-server somewhere has bad MX data.
If I can look at the headers of mail that failed from the "outside"
I'd have a better chance of finding it.
