    This is a strange problem. I've thought about it for a bit, but can't seem to figure it out. Here goes:

    Server is on network A.

    E-mail client is on network B.

    If I send e-mail from client on B, the e-mail will never get sent.

    If I send e-mail from webmail client on network A, e-mail gets sent out.

    dig from network B shows that everything is in order as far as DNS... as far as I can tell, anyway...

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>dig MX windsorhost.com

    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.2 <<>> MX windsorhost.com

    The only thing I can think of is that ns.windsorhost.com is mentioned with A records TWO TIMES with different IPs. I have fixed that problem.

    Otherwise, the IP and DNS configuration is correct.

    I do not own these domains, I'm simply trying to fix the problem for a client.

    Any hints / suggestions?

    Did you check /etc/resolv.conf ?
