Hi Tom,
I believe Merak Mail Server uses SpamAssassin under Windows.
As such, you may want to check that basic DNS resolution works.
For example, on that server can you:


It doesn't matter whether the ping itself works, but does it

That may or may not have to do with the issue, but it's useful to
check in case a proxy server is interfering with DNS, for example.

Does anyone else here use Merak?  If not you may need to continue
to work with the vendor.
