Hi All, we are having some real problems with Mailsite and Emerald working
together. The problem is really the Mailsite folks, but I wanted to mail
here to see what others are doing.

Our mailserver is a T-1 away from the SQL server. When that link goes down
someone receives a mail message, the mailsite marks the SQL server as down
will *bounce* all mail from users until mailsite is restarted. This is a
poor response from mailsite, as it should *refuse* connections and not just
bounce them...

Anyway, is anyone else out there experiencing this? We could move the mail
server to the same net as the SQL server, but would rather not for political
