Subject: sendmail troubles on nodus  

I'm having trouble getting the sendmail service going on nodus since the Christmas day power failure - for some reason, it seems like the mail server that sendmail uses to send out emails on nodus (mx1.caltech.iphmx.com, IP=68.232.148.132) is on a blacklist! Not sure how exactly to go about remedying this.

Running sudo systemctl status sendmail.service -l also shows a bunch of suspicious lines:

Why is nodus attempting to email umakant.rapol@iiserpune.ac.in?
