When trying to send emails to certain addresses an error window will pop up and
the email will not be sent. The message says; 

"An error occured while sending mail.  The mail server responded:
5.7.1<destinbation email address>....   Relaying denied IP name lookup
failed[local IP]   Please check the message receipients  and try again."

This error pops up sporadicaly. The email will be sent to some address, but not
to otherts despite the fact that these addresses are legitamate.  I was able to
send emails out without getting this message with previous versions of netscape
and mozilla, but both browsers give the same error.  I have also changed
outgoing mail servers and receive the same problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.compose or reply to an email
2.send the email

Actual Results:  
Depending on the destination address, I might receive this message.  

Expected Results:  
Send the message without any error message from appearing

This bug has not been reproducable to me, and I sent many test messages. 

Believe this to be a non-Mozilla problem.
