My server is in London and I work from Shropshire I have eight statics and the one I use mangga.<domain> ([82.xx.xx.2x5] the static is in my server zone file but no matter how I set up the Cisco I cannot get the ip id to show just mangga.<domain>.

So all my outgoing mail is flagged by the BOT plugin. Worse is the fact much of my email received comes from journalist in Asia where they have similar adsl addresses, these people like me operate away from their company servers. I cannot loose or afford to loose these emails. So to be sure I had to delete, for the time being the BOTNET plugin.

My ISP is doing what they can to resolve the address on my 'satellite' machines.

Thanks for the many replies even if I don't understand the reasons of what is happening.
