comment Do Cisco “Small Business” products come with support, or do you need to pay for a Cisco service contract?
I define support as technical support, which would include how-tos, problems and warranty issues. My experience with large enterprise support is great.

@MichelZ - Corrupt ISOs is not the problem. No one who has gotten this error has resolved it from all that I've read.

Can you please explain #1 in more detail, maybe a specific example? I'm kind of getting it but not sure...

good point, the headers will show traces of the intermediate system. Based on this, do you think it's theoretically possible that the ultimate email server could reject these mails? I think not, since I can't see a distinction between a normal email being relayed through some mailer somewhere (e.g. if the sender is gmail it'll go through google's mta) vs. an email relayed through the intermediate server in my case. In other words the ultimate destination mta can't distinguish one external mta vs. another. But this is what I wanted to verify... Thanks so much
