SUMMARY: OFF-TOPIC: Help test a new installation...

Actually, a summary is called for for two reasons:

1) Turns out that in the 5 years since I last did a firewall, not much has
changed in the MX records game. It looks like this: preference = 20, mail exchanger = preference = 10, mail exchanger = internet address = w.x.y.z internet address =

Turns out I had to do it the same way as I did the last time. Bummer.

2) To offer thanks for the many people who sent me mail to help debug the
problem. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart...

A special thanks to Matt Parker,, for reminding me why I had to
rely on timeouts, and to Tim Carlson ( for live debugging help.
