message id B4DA417C0DB comes from destination system and it means that it was put in queue.

+1 gheist, iptables and selinux are most definitely irrelevant (unless someone redirected port 25 on .6 to a different server that would drop part of the email, and send them back to the .6 ;)

grep B4DA417C0DB in the logs of .6 to see what happened with the email. i'd assume it was dropped by some antispam software

Hi Sandy, both internal and external emails lost sometimes

Mazdajai/Gheist, [root@localhost mail]# cat  /selinux/enforce
cat: /selinux/enforce: No such file or directory
[root@localhost mail]# service iptables status
Firewall is stopped.
[root@localhost mail]# cat  /etc/selinux/config
cat: /etc/selinux/config: No such file or directory
[root@localhost mail]#

You need to check at next hop system with IP hilighted for destiny of message ID hilighted. Mail succesfully left system you are in charge and you have no longer control over its delivery.
