One of my smtp servers (E2K) can successfully send mail to just about any domain on the internet. I have this one very frustrating problem. Whenever I try sending to one particular domain name it finds the server but then indicates that the "remote server did not respond to a connection attempt". I am able to send mail to this "suspect" domain from ANY of the non-E2K smtp servers in our environment. I have ruled out DNS and networking troubles and have talked with the administrator of the remote domain. We agree that it is something on my E2K server causing the problem but I can't, for the life of me, figure out what the problem is.
Installing a different SMTP server on the same system results in successful sending of mail to the domain in question. Reinstalling E2K results in an inability to successfully send mail to that domain.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
