Now I’ve got another problem with SMTP. When I try to connect, it takes FOREVER to send the welcome message. Go ahead and telnet into on port 25 and issue a HELO, and you’ll see what I mean. Just give it a few minutes before you do anything and you’ll see. After the initial wait, things are fine, but that first part takes forever. I thought that it could be something with DNS, but everything seems fine with DNS. The hostname and reverse DNS entries for the box are in there, and the DNS servers on the server are set correctly so it should be able to resolve it’s self pretty quickly (the DNS server it uses is on the local box, as is the zone for the domain).


Any idea??
