    I have an email address that I am trying to connect to. It is a remote address not set up on our server. I am able to reply to his emails fine when he sends me one. But if I try to generate a new email to the same address it always fails. The only difference I see in the log other than that one fails, is that when I reply to his email it shows


    where as when I create a new email that fails it says


    any ideas on where I need to look for a solution to this? Let me know if you need other information.

    What's the recipient domain?

    Can you post the header of an email he sends to you?

    What's the output of
    dig mx
    on your system? What's in /etc/resolv.conf?
