Sendmail no RCPT info from one domain.

I have a strange issue I want to run by you. Sendmail server in CA Sendmail server in NY

When a person sends an email to for someone in NY, it comes into, is forwarded to an exchange server in CA then his server changes the email address to and the message arrives in NY.

All mail to come directly to NY.

Anyway, if you look below a user from sent a test message to both and The message came in just fine but the message appears to time out. I get no error, discard, nothing. Just the one line I included below. The sender eventually gets a message “The message wasn’t send for 4 hours….”.

If you look at the log, you will see the one that worked was relayed through The one that didn’t went through My suspicion is there timing out or something. Also, as far as I know, it only mail from that is having a problem.

To domain1.COM

Jan 31 13:26:02 ns sendmail[22290]: l0VIPJEx022290: from=<>, size=4616, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, []
