You could remove both MX records completely, as maxboostracing.com resolves to 68.15.54.108 too. You can also remove the A record for mx1 and mx2


OK I just deleted those records.

For me it now looks OK, you probably removed the ESMTP line from the PIX.


Yes, I did remove the inspect statement. :) When I connect as you did, I still get that 15 second wait.
