that mails from servers not listed explicitly there should
"soft-fail", i. e. be accepted, but marked as, eh, "suspi-
cious".  So sending mails with that address from other ser-
vers will probably cause them to end up in some spam folder
or being discarded, with the recipients probably having very
little to no chance in hell to persuade their administrators
to accept your mails.

So, personally, I wouldn't invest any energy in that direc-
tion because that is a battle that you cannot win and if you
use that mail address for work, i. e. those mails are impor-
tant, you need a (reasonably) reliable solution.
