Well, everything always worked fine if I sent mail from the PPP gateway
machine. The problems appeared when I started sending mail from other
machines, connected to the PPP gateway with Ethernet:
Sending mail from <PPP gateway> always worked. Sending mail from <A> didn't
- until I changed the PPP MTU to 576. First I thought it was the Amiga 3000
that I was using as a gateway - but replacing that with an i386 box didn't
I can give you an e-mail address to try if you have a similar configuration
as I do. If you only have one machine connecting to the rest of the world
with a PPP link, you will most likely be fine.
