AFAIK Eircom will only send mail to a static IP address from an ETRN
request. At least that is the way we had to set it up. I would ring them
first to verify this. Also I have experienced problems with ETRN delivery
from eircom when the queue gets locked. I have to ring support and ask them
to release the queue as I get no response from ETRN request. Anyone else
experiencing this or is it at my end ??
