I noticed that nic.funet.fi is 2.99.49p6a7 too, so it must be my
problem. But I don't know what it is.

I do request DNS verification, but the remote sites are not unreachable.
All the sites got stuck in the MAIL command, e.g., nic.funet.fi,
uunet.ca, all the big sites. And does not seemto be a policydb thing,
since it doesn't generate SMTP errors, the smtpserver just got stuck
there doing nothing.
