Double-check this, but I seem to recall that square-bracketing the
domain side of the address was a technique to stop MX lookups.

e.g. chris@[]

But, this is a work around.  You'd still want to find where the error is
in your network set up.  Things seem to be pointing in that direction
more than the mail server set up.

(This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
