I'm posting to this list because I don't know if this
is a qmail problem or a vpopmail problem:

I have a problem with my qmail smtp server but I can't
figure out what is causing the problem.

I've had 5 people so far that have complained that
they are getting rejected messages back when trying to
send to me.
Here is the mesage
>Connection timed out:
>SMTP timeout while connected to [my ip address] after

>initial connection:  retry timeout exceeded

Now, I know that me and the other people that have
email accounts on my server get 100s of emails a day.
It's just from a select few that can't seem to send me
email. (but I can send them email with no problems)

Also, I use the unix program called 'mon' to do
monitoring and it times out when testing my server,
yet it works great with other qmail
servers I've built.
./smtp.monitor <my ip address> 
<my ip address>: Connection timed out

I can telnet to my server and type in smtp commands
manually and it works fine.

I just got done reinstalling qmail and I still have
the same problem.

Anyone have any ideas?
