Is your mail user agent doing some sort of markdown processing, by
chance?  Maybe you aren't seeing what's actually being written.  If
that's the case, it's only adding to your problems.

The output of "host -t mx cyrania.com." on my machine includes a hostname
that begins with an underscore.  underscore dee cee hyphen em ex.
This hostname (including its leading underscore) appears on each of the
three lines in the quoted text above.

If you aren't seeing it, then something's wrong.

If you doubt my output, go ahead and run your own tests, on a machine
under your own control.
