This is more of an observation than a question. (and not Spam:) When setting up our AS/400 for E-mail, it started out as just E-mail using PPP dialing into our ISP. the DNS server was on our ISP. Our network keeps upgrading to now we have a straight TCP/IP network. so I can use names for local machines, I started up DNS serving on the 400. It go to be we were running TCP/IP servers for SMTP, POP, DHCP, DNS and all the Client Access servers. something I have found is some of the servers on the 400 are horriable. namely the DNS server. it took about 50% of the processor and DNS lookups took about 30 seconds each. I moved the DNS server to a FreeBSD box, and the lookups went to about a second. Also, the SMTP server. I don't know if I had it set up wrong, but there are a few companies like fedex.com (small companies like that) that I couldn't send E-mail to. it would refuse my connection. I assume since these were all large companies, they have some sort of spam blocker, and thought I was spam. so I told the 400's SMTP server that I have a firewall, and send all of my E-mail to my ISP's e-mail router. and viola, I could send E-mail to everywhere.
