Try putting the IP address in square brackets like[]


No, there is no need to do that.

I manage 50 or more external domains (for anti-virus/anti-spam

The  remote  host  is  qmail-remote's first argument, host.
qmail-remote sends the message to host, or to a mail exchanger for host
listed in the
Domain Name System, via the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP).
host can be either a fully-qualified domain name:

Cool, learn something new every day. Guess I never got bitten by it as
