Hi list

I am seeing extreemly long login times on my smtp server.  It pauses for ~1min 
right after connection.

telnet mail.vlaamse-kern.com 25
Connected to mail.vlaamse-kern.com 
Escape character is '^]'.
220 mail.vlaamse-kern.com ESMTP Sendmail 8.13.1/8.13.1; Wed, 21 Dec 
2005 18:38:21 +0100

Further information: when I connect from the lan to port 25 on the public ip 
address, the connection is refused, but when I connect from the lan to port 
25 on the server's private ip address, the connection is established and the 
pause does not occur.

Can anyone make sense of this?

With kind regards
