Thanks for your quick reply, ok for the record, I'm using postfix, heard it 
was more secure than sendmail (I heard!! don't really know..) I sent mail to 
my hotmail and yahoo acounts and they received them. as for checking my mail 
que (my sent-mail box and outbox) all mail was sent out (outbox is empty) 
sent-mail box has all my sent letters. if I'm looking in the wrong place 
please let me know.  

at the moment I'm guessing that my domain   Gavin1.localdomain (work box) and 
Gavin2.localdomain (Gateway box)  has been black listed..  Jack, how do I 
check to see if I have been B.listed?? and if anyone is using postfix, how 
should I set it up and which box should I setup  eg. only gateway box or 
both?? I know these questions sound stupid but I feel a stupid question is 
one that is never asked. Thanks for your time.

P.S. Jack, what flavor are you running??
