Including loopback from the SIMS host.

Try  That way you don't blacklist mail sending from
the server machine itself, which might be something you want to do.

Hum good point. I don't originate mail on my mail server on a regular basis so maybe that is why I haven't had a problem.

OTOH, I _have_ sent mail from the server from time to time. My recollection is that the mail is tagged with the DSL NIC IP address rather than with the loop back interface IP address (at least on OS8.1 when using Eudora).
