Description

Email from djangoproject.com (when registering for an account) comes from servers with mismatched PTR records. This caused email to be rejected by many systems performing standard anti-spam checks.

The reverse DNS for the IP should resolve to an hostname that resolves back to the same IP. It doesn't.
