Hi Beni,

Thank you for your reply.

I have encountered the "refusing the first connection of a unknown remote
mailserver" syndrome in the past, and not just the first connection either. My
ISP has multiple server hosts and each seems ignorant of what any of the others
has already bounced. That's how it seems from the outside anyway, but they won't
confirm it of course.

Or the problem may be that the Slackbuilds email checker believes the MX
records. These point to partnerconsole.net but email headers always show mail
coming via netregistry.net. I have no idea how this works but it seems to, most
of the time.

I am raising a ticket with the domain owner,

Cheers ... Duncan.
