I had one user in the departmen who had hos private server at gandi.net,
and that as mail server was misconfigured (fell under several definitions
in http://rfcignorant.net/). I don't know whose fault was that, the user
or that of provider. If you are going to use gandi.net, check what DNS
settings will be for your mail server, so you will not end up as my user.

I hope, this helps.
