Error when MailScanner calls Sendmail

If 18.104.22.168 is the actual IP of your server - and you're not
running a local DNS - then it could just be that there's no DNS PTR
record for 22.214.171.124.
When I run: host 126.96.36.199
I get: Host 188.8.131.52.in-addr.arpa. not found: 2(SERVFAIL)
In this case, gethostbyaddr(184.108.40.206) is going to fail as well.
Perhaps the DNS PTR record for this host disappeared last friday? Or
something else in the DNS setup?
