Thanks very much for all the responses, and the advice,
especially the above.
I see that I had
in /etc/mail/sendmail.mc on my laptop,
that being the name of my home web-server.
I guess I must have set this at some point,
perhaps when I had ideas above my station.
I've changed this to
that being the name of my ISP.
Hopefully this will assuage the spam thought-police.
That at least helps. Ideally you would just use your ISPs SMTP servers
though, instead of your own sendmail.
