Are you sure this comes from your ISP?

It seems that you have defined "ultrasw.com" not to go to the smarthost.
That means that mail adressed to somebody@ultrasw.com stays in your own
box. That's ok, if your box really is ultrasw.com which it probably is
not. If you have a dynamic IP, you most likely also have a dynamic FQDN
something.ultrasw.com, which should be among dc_other_hostnames.
