Subject: Long delay in SMTP handshake

X-Mailer: iPad Mail (11B554a)
We have Problems with one mail sender SMTP to receive mails on our CGP 5.1.16. On OSX.5.8 The sender goes always into a time out, while trying to make the handshake

The IT responsible always measures 27 secs delay until our server answers with 220 (in between the peer has closed connection, because his time out limit is lower) 

When I make myself a Telnet connection from different sites, I get the 220 always immediate.

1. I do not understand these contradictory results

2. If this delay as the sender measures is reality: is a wrong setup in our server responsible for that? Which one?

Thanks for help
