I'm wondering if anyone else out there is using optimum online in the
tri-state area?  I recently switched from Earthlink DSL, and I'm
having a devil of a time getting my OpenBSD 3.6 box to relay mail.

I'm having a hard time pinpointing the problem here.  Sometimes the
error is a timeout while sending DATA, other times it's "Refused to
talk to me: 421 Connection not accepted at this time".

Stranger still, I have aliases set up so roots mail goes to an
external address as well as a local box, and sometimes, but not
always, some of the delivery failure messages find their way to the
external address.

I've tried with and without transport_maps, smtp_sasl_auth_enable,
differnt values for relay_transport, everything I can think of.  I've
included the current settings if anyone wants to take a look.
