Yes, I think that's correct isn't it because that is the name of the
machine that sends my mail? However it is sending mail for the domain
JandG-Cooper.com, and I think all the headers on the message and the
envelope show that address.

I do think I realize what the problem was now. I did until recently have
jandg-cooper.com listed as a cname for cooper-linux.jandg-cooper.com, so
perhaps the mail list server was canonicalizing the domain part of the
address as part of the header rewriting. I have removed that cname entry
from the DNS at the weekend, so that's may be why the problem seems to
have disappeared since Saturday.

I am now listed in the leafnode mail list as
grahame@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, but that will continue to work
fine as long as I keep my mail server on that machine.
