  Sending test email with bogus address to attglobal and yahoo, I get
bounces back from both using NS7.x:

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

<dippitydod…>: failed after I sent the message.
Remote host said: 554 delivery error: dd Sorry your message to
dippitydod… cannot be delivered. This account has been
disabled or discontinued [#102]. -


When I send test to the same addresses using SMTP, I get nothing back.
Is there some setting I have got screwed up here?

This is email header from NS:
