>The other 2 MX's accept my mail.  Only the 2nd choice is rejecting.  Could someone rectify the situation?  Or are we going to be forced to use our ISP smarthosts?  
I guess I'm lucky, my ip is not listed at sorbs.net. Just record me as 
another one who sends mail from a dynamic ip, for LEGITIMATE purposes, 
and good reasons. The server at my ISP has a knack of going down just 
when I'm ready to send something important.

Anyway, the server at mail2.dshield.org introduces itself as "220 
iceman12-ext.giac.net - Welcome to our SMTP server ESMTP" to me, so it 
looks like it has been fixed.
