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 126.96.36.199, but is sending mail.djangoproject.com in the HELO, which is 188.8.131.52. This was fixed briefly last weekend, but the system seems to have returned to the previous behaviour.
