[Homeroast] List problems

I'm still only getting emails from the list very sporadically.
Strict mail servers do and should require that names resolve both forwards and backwards.

$ nslookup lists.sweetmariascoffee.com
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:	lists.sweetmariascoffee.com

$ nslookup
Non-authoritative answer:	name = host.sweetmariascoffee.com.

They do not match. This is an easy fix. Many people have complained about email problems from this list.
I really wish this would be fixed.

"Just switch to <insert mail service that doesn't check sender IPs>" isn't a good answer. For one thing, people will continue to have problems. It just masks the underlying issue, which is a DNS problem.
