Guess 1: the domain does not yet exist, so the software
refuses an address to it.  [I hope that the software is not that

Guess 2: you have an MX record for to,
for which there is not an explicit definition.  Sure, there's the
wildcard CNAME.  But do you expect the software to pick up on that?
;-)  Besides, having an MX to a CNAME alias is a deprecated practice.

Surely, somewhere in their help files, they tell you what the possible
producers of this error message are!
