I am stumped, for lack of knowledge no doubt...
I am running slackware linux, kernel 1.2.5
I can't mail to any addresses on ibm.net
I can mail to most other addresses.
Mail sits in my mail queue saying
reply: read error from mx01.ny.us.ibm.net
This happens when I use elm to mail and
when users using Eudora use my Linux
box as a mail host.
What gets me is that I can run sendmail by
hand and mail to ibm.net addresses using
and this test message gets there fine (from the
same Linux system)
I presumed that this would be the way that elm would use
sendmail more or less, but I can't seem to get the debug
function of elm to work so I can see what is happening...
I think my sendmail.cf is more or less ok, I mail to
places all over the world... enough babble, any help
would be hugely appreciated.
oh yeah finally, I noticed that the Mail Exchangers
for ibm.net are both preference 10 ( I thought you
weren't supposed to have two mail exchangers with
the same preference?... but I don't think that
is what is breaking it.)
Two wheels good,
four wheels bad.
