      dual stacked with ipv4 and ipv6 ?, this was my problem as well if so,
      postscreen is only working if there is one smtpd listner using it, so i
      disabled it for now

      if there is a master.cf fix for this please show it, after thinking
      more about it have ipv6 and ipv4 db seperately would solve it ?
