Hi all,

Apologies if this is the wrong group - couldn't find one which deals specifically with the smtp proxy.

Occasionally, users report that mail is returned to them as
undeliverable when it should be okay. I have one at the moment. I've looked up the MX record, and the highest priority mail server for that

domain does not reposnd when I attempt to connect on port 25 through a

telnet client. I've checked with them, and that mailserver is offline
at
the moment.

There are, however, two other lower priority mailservers which BM
should
attempt connection to next (both respond when I telnet to them on port

25). It doesn't seem to be doing so - although I can't check, 'cos
every
time I switch logging on the box falls over. Is there a switch
somewhere
which may not have been flicked?

Cheers!
