sSMTP, this mailing list, and helo errors

I moved email from a FreeBSD 6.2 machine to a FreeBSD 7.2 machine.
On both machines, I'm using sSMTP to send email to a mailserver
managed by a shared hosting server, with SSL/TLS authentication.
Everything works, except for one "small" problem -- sending email to this
list. It has apparently exposed a problem with the setup. I get a "Helo
command rejected: Host not found" error when sending to this list.
The weird part is that I'm using *exactly* the same ssmtp.conf file on
both the 7.2 system and the 6.2 system. As you can see -- since this
email comes from the 6.2 system -- that configuration file isn't causing
any problems sending with sSMTP on 6.2, so I'm a little confused about
the cause of the problem. Where else should I look for a problem?
My MUA is Mutt (and yes, that's using exactly the same configuration file
Thanks in advance for any help.
