Which, while handled by the same mailserver, is another e-mail address entirely. I can think of two possibilities for this:
One of us is wrong. Either there's some corner of an RFC I missed which says rewriting host names is okay and I need to change my DNS config away from being a CNAME, or WW is doing a Very Bad Thing. Both scenarios are plausible--WW is the only place I've encountered with this particular behavior; however, very few places fully implement RFCs (how many websites can handle the full range of e-mail localparts, after all?).
So enlighten me!
Getting MX record for <removed>(from local DNS server, may be cached)...
Note: A CNAME appeared in the results. Although technically valid for a CNAME to appear during an MX record lookup,
it is very unusual and not recommended (since CNAMEs are not allowed in two other cases during MX record lookups).
Well, that's annoying. Ah well. Guess I'm in the wrong. Had to happen at some point. ;)
