I suspected as much, but nevertheless that's some useful information to
know. Thanks.

*grin*, already tried via a customer of ours.
I can imagine that the front-line support took one look at said tcpdump,
didn't understand it, and have just binned the email. True story: I once
contacted 9netave tech support regards a possible UK/US routing issue,
to be told that the primary & secondary servers on a domain name I
didn't even run wern't 9netave's, and that was causing the problem.

In other words: not my problem, so I'm not going to spend inordinate
amounts of time chasing it up... if I can get some evidence of this
happening from other places, then I'll fire it off to them and forget
about it. :)

Thanks for the info
