You are right, one detail about the mail config was not in order,
but I fixed it and talked with t-online, that is not the issue.
They 'demand' full address and name on my webpage to accept mails
from me.

More verbose on what was misconfigured:
As of yesterday, I had this:
- MX record for was pointing at
- had an A record to my server
- the postfix was acting as ''
- and the IP reverse lookup was pointing at

So while it had not presented issues so far, these were not
aligned.  Now:
- MX record was not changed, also not A record
- postfix is now acting as ''
- the IP reverse lookup is now pointing at

This is not convenient as all reverse lookups for the IP will
now bring up, even if these were related 
to other services, i.e. https.

That issue was what caused the warning on .

So it's basically back to my original issue: a provider has
setup rules asking me to publish my data, only then he will
accept mails from me.
