ive looked at both of these articles and ran the relevant cmds in the MSH.  no settings have been modified.  External sending is setup as default.  The issue still is present.  Must be missing somehting somewhere.

Using a smarthost was the problem.  As soon as i changed to send via DNS.  Bang, works fine.
