options available in postfix... I've never used the transport maps
before, and I did read this page a few times, but still wasn't
absolutely sure that my understanding was correct (sometimes I'm a
little shy about trusting my own reading comprehension skills with
things I'm far from expert in).
It didn't help that when I tried testing it early in the morning (little
to no impact on our users if something went wrong), I was having a
problem with mail to these addresses *sometimes* (but not always)
getting stuck in the outbound queue...
Well, I finally discovered - after a phone conversation with their tech
support - that about a year ago Comcast Business Class discontinued SMTP
relay service for their customers unless Comcast was actually hosting
the email (what bullshit - I'm not talking residential, but 'Business
Class' service), but apparently one of their IP's would still relay,
while the others wouldn't, so when an outbound email hit the working
relay, it would go out.
Anyway, this is working now sending direct for these addresses, so
thanks for the gentle clue-stick.
