I just sent a note off to postmaster at woodmaclaw.com, but then doublechecked
dnsreports.  It looks like it's backup.mywebmailserver.com that's
misconfigured, not mail.woodmaclaw.com.  All my original comments apply
still, I think, but the addresses in the mailer-table might be different
depending on his IP layout.

Dnsreport message:
ERROR: One or more of your mailservers does not accept mail to
postmaster at woodmaclaw.com. Mailservers are required (RFC822 6.3,
RFC1123 5.2.7, and RFC2821 4.5.1) to accept mail to postmaster.
backup.mywebmailserver.com's postmaster response:
>>> RCPT TO:<postmaster at woodmaclaw.com> <<< 550 5.7.1 ... we do not relay <>
