I have a machine running FreeBSD, sendmail and majordomo.  I have someone who is on one of those majordomo lists complaining that they are receiving spam from me.  The complainer says I have an open mail relay that I need to fix.  

I went to <> to test the machine using its IP address. gives a clean bill of health, saying relaying was denied in 17 separate tests.  

I've reviewed my mail logs for the past couple of days and I can't find any entries for any mail addressed to the complainer's domain name except mail that should have been sent.  

Is's test adequate to rule out an open mail relay problem?
