one more thing
I forgot to mention that when I changed back to port 25, restarted apache, and flushed the queue, everything cleared out real fast, except for one email. Any guesses who it was going to? Right, AOL. I guess they blocked my server due to non-protocol connection attempts to port 26. hehe. Any ideas how I might get them to relinquish this title of hoodlum that they have so graciously bestowed upon me? Or am I to be blessed with this title forevermore?
Thanks again for your responses.
