Hi Rene,

I'm back from Australia, so I will be handling your problem.

I am more than happy to do this for sites that are struggling.

OK, first problem.  If I do the following, I get a different IP address
for cumulus.imta.mx:

nslookup cumulus.imta.mx
Server:  laraine.unidata.ucar.edu

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    cumulus.imta.mx

If I do an nslookup on the IP address you provided I get:

Server:  laraine.unidata.ucar.edu

*** laraine.unidata.ucar.edu can't find host/domain

If I try to ping cumulus.imta.mx I get no response.  I figure that the IP address must either be the correct one or close to it
since your email address comes across as address@hidden

Can you provide some insight into what the real IP address of your machine
is?  Is it on all of the time?  Can you ping it by either of the IP numbers
above from a different machine?

It strikes me that the machine may have some networking setup problem and
this is the cause of my not being able to get through.  I don't know
what to tell you about the IP address since we can't get to
it in any way.

As soon as I can get to your machine, I will login; do an installation;
and send you the list of things that I did so you can recreate the
