Hi Rick,

no milters are configured...this is a really small intranet with 
absolutely no connectivity to the outside world.

I'm baffled.  Regarding your mention of a dns issue...it may be, but i'm 
still baffled as this was all working before the weekend.  I rebooted 
the box on Sunday and am in this <pun intended> bind today :)

Thanks for your input...much appreciated.
