Subject: Cannot resolve the domain name

I'm getting the following in my logs: (Ick on the word wrap, so I'm breaking
lines with an extra return)

09:29:31 2 SYSTEM [S.0000094572]
<21C814D77172D211AF7000A0C9CDAFFF019BAB4C@uphsex02.uphs.upenn.edu> 1+0
From:xxxxx@uphs.upenn.edu

09:30:04 1 SMTP-419(mail.krt.com) 'From' rejected, got 474
<xxxxx@uphs.upenn.edu> cannot resolve the domain name\r

09:30:04 3 SMTP [S.0000094572] delayed by mail.krt.com: 474
<xxxxx@uphs.upenn.edu> cannot resolve the domain name\r

When I do an MX query on the domain, I get:

Start: 6/12/00    3:53:59 PM
;; Query: uphs.upenn.edu ,type = MX , class = ANY

;; ANSWERS:
uphs.upenn.edu.    41040    IN    MX    10  mail.uphs.upenn.edu.

DNR Query complete 6/12/00    3:53:59 PM  


So why can't SIMS resolve the domain? Is it because there's no A record for
uphs.upenn.edu? If so, does there legally have to be, since there seem to be
proper MX records?

TIA,
Tim
