Hi all.

I hope it's OK to ask this here of you bright people, as come up with no 
answer despite a mythic search:

I recntly got a smart phone, primarily so that I could manage my network in an 
emergency if away from the office and a computer.  (As an aside, using the 
mobile versions of OpenVPN, VNC, and Putty, among others, I'm able to do so 
quite nicely). As another peice, I'd like to connect to our Sendmail MTA 
(used in conjuction with MailScanner, MailWatch, Spamassassin, clamav, 
Synonym) for emailing purposes. I've tried a few different MUA's, and can 
receive mail, but am unable to send it.  The error at the seerver is:

Jul  2 10:07:10 mail1 sendmail[26498]: m62E6fSg026498: 
81.sub-75-221-91.myvzw.com [] did not issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN 
during connection to MTA

I feel I should know how to configure my mail system to accept mail from this 
source, but I don't. Any help would be appreciated.
