But I don't understand how it can be a dns issue when I can connect to the port with no problem. It's just not giving me back the correct smtp response.
After I posted the last message, it's now giving me the [220 <my domain> ESMTP] line when I telnet to port 25. It's like it goes to sleep once in a while and some smtp servers don't like that so they return the email back to the sender... --- Shane Chrisp <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > >Well, it gets worse.
