Yeah, and if there are any evaluators on the list, when you go to purchase your license, if it's single-server, you really should consider licensing it to the host FQDN instead of the domain name since there are many servers that violate the intent of the RFC and do reject mail when HELO doesn't match RDNS. With both sides being stubborn about their policies, it's just best to work around it.
