Django's Trac e-mails come from the wrong IP address

Description

Strict mail servers will perform a reverse lookup on IP addresses to make sure they match up with the HELO. This is a useful check because it eliminates a whole lot of spam. Unfortunately, this Trac instance is sending the e-mail from 64.207.133.30, but is sending mail.djangoproject.com in the HELO, which is 64.207.133.18. This was fixed briefly last weekend, but the system seems to have returned to the previous behaviour.

I just tried something (http://www.postfix.org/postconf.5.html#smtp_bind_address). Did it work?

Looks like that did the trick.
