Hi,

I'm a newcomer to ifmail. All netmail and echomail that passes through
seems just fine. Stuff that is posted from my machine (especially
netmail) seems to dissappear on my downlinks. If I send a netmail to
sysop@f104.n268.z1.fidonet.org it goes just fine. If I use the sysops
full name Don.Izenberg@f104.n268.z1.fidonet.org it dissapears on his
system. I tried sending netmail to my account on these systems with the
same result.

Looking at the pkt's I see the MSGID: as circuitb and it is from
myname@circuitb.microserve.com not my fido address My Name@1:268/348.
I feel this may be the cause.

Am I missing something?

Also I modified sendmail.cf and it works just fine. Only thing is it
brings up my ppp link whenever I send mail to fidonet. The mail doesn't
go to the internet, but it seems to have to check there first. Should I
move something to a different position in sendmail.cf?

Thanks!!
