Could it be trying to verify your system through the ^MSGID??
I think that's what is happening here, even with my system
identified as p1.f15.n346.z1.ftn in /etc/hosts, and hostname -f
making a successful FQDN report, ifmail appends "@fidonet" to the
address in ^MSGID and I think the other system chokes on it.
What have I got misconfigured this time..........?
