I'm having issues sending mail to one specific domain. The customer recently changed hosts, and the host claims ot have a second MX record, using the first as a decoy, and therefore is stating the problem is at my end.

From my understanding, spammers will usually hit the second mx first expecting it will not have antispam blocking as will thte first mx. Regardless, this is what they are claiming. Can someone give me any suggestions on if there is something I need to change at my end. I'm running Merak Mail on a MS 2003 Server. I've checked over my DNS and everything seems to be ok.

Below is a copy of their statement. :-)

Thanks for your help! ;-)
