I'm not it's a problem with my system. It's not that IP that has the
problem, but with the host itself:
$ host S253906HZ1EW06.usstls6-hosting.savvis.net
Host S253906HZ1EW06.usstls6-hosting.savvis.net not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
I suppose I could add that host to /etc/hosts, but is there another
way to whitelist mail from this host/domain to a specific user? There
are also no SPF records to use...
