I have never seen such box, but badly behaving firewalls
are not a new phenomena...
It looks like an SMTP server that does a store and forward
processing.. e.g. the SMTP session terminates at that box.
You might get messages to go thru, if you route them thru
'smtp77' channel (e.g. intentionally disable every extension
beyond basic half-duplex RFC 821). If it helps, I am most
curious about the difference of SMTP protocol at network level
in both cases, e.g. tcpdump (or snoop) of related network traffic:
tcpdump -s 9999 -w tcpdump.220.127.116.11.default host 18.104.22.168
and after route change:
tcpdump -s 9999 -w tcpdump.22.214.171.124.smtp77 host 126.96.36.199
If that doesn't help, perhaps the snoops give me some ideas...
