i have gwia 6 on my bm 3.7 box and have put in the filter exceptions
tid #10009647. i can't seem to be able to receive mail from the
internet. i
can send mail out to the internet and it appears to work fine but not
other way.

the bm box has a public and private interface. do my filter exceptions
to point to the private or public ip address?

i can't even seem to telnet to the GWIA on port 25 with filters
loaded. it
only works when i unload the filters. what could be preventing me from
this ?
