Problems receiving mail

I have a machine that I have installed zmailer-2.99.25 on, and I am
having some trouble receiving mail. Outgoing mail seems to be fine.
The smtpserver correctly receives the mail, but the router is having
some problems with the incoming address. I get the following messages
in the router log:

<3200D0AF.7D4C@ix.netcom.com>: address: dgdelage@ix.netcom.com

I have been spending most of today trying to learn exactly how the
configuration scripts are processing the headers, but I have not
gotten very far. Does anyone know of any detailed information that
discusses the operation of the config scripts? I have the zmog.doc
file, and that gives some good clues, but there seems to be pieces 
missing at times.

Does anyone have a few moments to jot down some ideas of what could
