I can't send an e-mail to one of my clients and I can't find the cause of
the problem. Here is the relevent SMTP log:

I'm afraid it's something obvious but I can't see it.

The DNS server for CTBR.COM is NS.INTERLINK.NET (198.168.73.8), the MX
records point to SMTP.INTERLINK.NET (198.168.54.58) and MAIL.QC.UUNET.CA
(198.168.54.16).

UUNET assured me that my host was not blacklisted.

We use SIMS 1.7

Why does SIMS try to connect to the SMTP port of the DNS server?

TIA,
Clem.
