Postfix on mail.eskimo.com

     Postfix is acting up on mail.eskimo.com, I do not know if this is because of an update or exactly what is wrong.  Specifically, it is rejecting some clients even though I have explicitly told it to accept SASL authenticated clients regardless of EHLO status.  This is causing issues when sending e-mail from some phones when the IP address assigned has no inverse DNS OR when it is running off of WiFi and using a NAT address instead of a real IP address.

     I am attempting to compile the latest postfix which has a number of bug fixes after the version that Ubuntu supplies to see if it will correct this.  Also compiling the latest openSSL as the Ubuntu version is one release behind and does not have all the latest encryptions.  There will be some interruption of outgoing mail service as it will be necessary to remove the Ubuntu version before installing the locally compiled version.
