Okay,

        First, I think you mean MX not RX, but maybe there is a change in
the RFC that includes an RX ??  I will look latter today.

        Second, check out this web page,
http://www1.seattlelab.com/docs/slmail/32/faq/mx.htm for a faily good over
view of MX records and how they work for you.

        Third, do you have anything between the ISP, and the AS/400 that may
be running a UNIX SENDMAIL and/or SAFEMAIL process ??

        Lastly, do you do your own DNS and pass Secondary to your ISP, or
are you dependant on your ISP for all DNS support ??

        JMS....
