After many months of bizarre behavior and generally poor performance, I
have isolated a problem involving the 3com 3x905 NICs.


1. NTMail would timeout on large attachments. Reguardless of the transfer
rate, the client would timeout at 10 minutes on the nose.

2. NTMail using external Authentication with Emerald DB would fail, causing
rejected mail and a many locked threads. Also, this locked threads seem to
be the source of a considerable memory leak.


Most people are still running the 3x905 drivers that came with the NT
distrib. The drivers were updated on 6/9/98 and fixes all of my NTmail and
Serv-U authentication problems. No unwanted side effects were noted
following the upgrade.
