postfix bouncing



I am trying to send mail to a localhost installation of postfix.

1) The localhost is a DHCP configured workstation.
2) The localhost workstation has no DNS entries because of (1).
3) I manually set the /etc/hosts file for the IP and hostname
4) hostname and dnsdomainname resolve correctly.

Mail is rejected at the localhost smtp server with the following in /var/log/mail.log:

From this same box, I can do 'dig mx tacocat.net' and get a response.
