I have tinkered with the max message size and other things as well. Its 
really weird. I can send him attachements from anywhere except from 
within my interanl LAN. I can manually que up the messages to send using 
sendmail -q -vc and watch all the output. It connects to the hosts and 
everything is fine until it starts the data tranfer. And that is where I 
get I/O error.
