Actually, if submitting on port 25 and the server is publicly reeferenced, it 
is *required* to reject unqualified recipients.

It's always worth checking whether you have submission on port 587.  The SMTP 
server is allowed to be more liberal in what it accepts - it may qualify 
domains for you, for example - and furthermore a firewall can deny access to 
it from outside the lan, so security isn't compromised (port 25 remains strict 
on syntax of course).  You might just be lucky and have such a configuration.

to the list in general: is this what domain in the identity panel is for?  
I've never figured what it does.
