The IbM SMTP server will attempt to resend emails that didn't get delivered
over and over.

It's a good idea to end MSF and restart it with the *CLEAR option now and

I've made a very little bit of progress on troubleshooting this:

Yesterday afternoon, I got word that the box was contacting Google
"every 30-40 seconds." This sounded like a retry, but it took me a while
to figure out the next steps.

This morning, doing a Google search for whether the SMTP server had
logs, I discovered the WRKSMTPEMM command (something new in V7; I'd
never heard of it before). I found some test messages from the actual
application still in the system, but not the test messages I'd sent from

After looking at the logs on the three, I got rid of them, and tried
sending another test message from MMail. That showed up immediately, and
I looked at its log. I found:

11:47:52 0029 Recipient JHHL@xxxxxxxxx transfered to server directly
11:47:52 0039 Marking JHHL@xxxxxxxxx as WRK
11:47:53 0039 Connected to Server SMTP-RELAY.GMAIL.COM(
11:47:53 0039 ):587
11:47:53 003A Marking JHHL@xxxxxxxxx as NDL

Now THAT is interesting.
