No, it's plain 2.99.51.

First, it looks like this:
        G/232706-128:   (activation pending, thread inactive, expires in 2d23h, tries=0)

Then, if I'm online it sends message immediately (without
ETRN). If not, it fails to connect:
        G/232706-128:   smtp; 500 (connect to csd.uniyar.ac.ru
[|25]: Network is unreachable) (retry in 12h39m,
expires in 2d23h, tries=1)

When I'm online, I do:
$ telnet localhost smtp
ETRN csd.uniyar.ac.ru

Soon after that, mailq shows what the queue is empty.

I recommend you to recheck what you done everything as written
in documentation and check logs.
