True, I hadn't noticed the leading dots before the name.

I've looked into:

but in...
... I see a leading dot.

However, I clean-and-relay mail for half a dozen clients and I never use 
leading dots. In fact, since one of my servers doesn't have a reverse 
DNS address I have to add:

aol.com                 smtp:[]
netscape.net            smtp:[]

... to my mailertable so that aol and netscape addresses will be sent 
through my brain-dead isp's mail servers.
