I've an odd SMTP issue here, which a customer asked me to look at.
Somebody sent an email to two people in the customer's office - one got
it ten hours after the other. Having finally extracted the headers of
the mails from the customer, there's something very odd - the delayed
mail has two Received lines from the same stage of the process, i.e.
Received by server B from server A and these two lines have times ~10
The email which arrived promptly had 3 Received; headers - the delayed
one had 4, the additional one being the extra one mentioned above. The
odd tow headers are like this:
Received: from anchor-post-36.mail.demon.net [22.214.171.124] (HELO
by c1m11.emaildefenseservice.com (mxl_mta-1.3.8-10p6) with SMTP id

Any ideas ?
