Yes - it lets mail in. As you can see from the headers, it bangs any
mail around various boxen under the general domain
something.mailhost.ntl.com These use 81.x (a broadband user server)
62.253.x.x (Legacy dialup smtp server) and 212.250.x.x (The devil
knows what)

FWIW, that one went out under windows into ntl's servers and back to
me, but if I try the same under linux it gets bounced :-/.



I can send in Mozilla under windows, but not with postfix under linux.
It changed first, I didn't. I have farted about a bit since, but can
always revert to the mail hint's main.cf.
