Thanks for the suggestions, but it doesn't look like etrn is the issue.  We 
don't have anyone using etrn at all on any of our mail servers at this point 
and the noetrn option is in the MailScanner startup script.  Also, the only 
reference to etrn in the logs are lines like:

Oct  6 09:59:55 smtp-gateway-5 sendmail[22406]: j96DxtOg022406: 
[218.68.xxx.xxx] did not issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN during connection to MTA

So, there's still something going on that I'm not aware of...

Any other thoughts? :)
