from pagestation.com I can "ping devcentos5x64.msgnet.com" - this entry 
is in the /etc/hosts file on that machine.
There is no official MX record for devcentos5x64.msgnet.com there is for 
pagestation.com.

on pagestation.com I have the /etc/hosts entry and /etc/mail/access 
entry for devcentos5x64.msgnet.com
Perhaps its an MX lookup timeout value.

 I am looking for a timeout setting or a way to place an entry in a 
config file that says "I know this server or machine", trust it and
dont delay. Is there such a setting?

Jerry
