Mail From SUN to Symbolics

We have our Symbolics and Sun's networked using TCP/IP and are having
a problem getting mail from the Sun to the Symbolics (there is no problem
in the other direction). The problem appears to be at the SMTP protocol
level.  The Sun starts a connection and the Symbolics says it has an SMTP 
connection.  The Sun then sends a "HELO Sunname" and the Symbolics never
replies and eventually the Sun timesout.  We have tried a number of sendmail 
flags including -ba and -bs but it still hangs on the "HELO" message.  We 
have tried a manual connect using the mconnect program and have manually
sent mail using this system, so the connection works.  If anyone has some
other ideas we might try or have run up against this problem and solved it
we would be happy to hear from you.  Thanks for your time.
