as a test -- try sending from the command line to see if it goes...

Then see what happens....

E-mail works great as long as it is sent between users on the same machine (i.e. mail -s "test" username) but when I attempt to e-mail my account from outside of my machine (i.e. sent to username at vtcdev.gc.lucent.com) the mail never arrives. This happens when I send e-mail from outside of Lucent or from the Lucent network (just from a different machine on the network).
