Hi Andrew,

please always respond to the list, not personally to me. Maybe someone
can bring some light into your situation after reading it, so I'm
completely quoting it:

I cannot trust that part. Did the POP connection really originate from
the same IP addresse as the SMTP connection?

How did you check if the IP address has been in tcp.smtp.cdb?

No need to switch; you can use both techniques at once, thus allowing
clients to use whichever they want.
