Okay, I give up. Apparently MCI has an SMTP filter either 
on the domain or on something in the 
network on 

[]$ telnet 25

Escape character is '^]'.
220 ESMTP Sendmail 8.8.5/8.8.5; Wed, 24 Sep 1997 11:2)
250 Hello [email protected] [],
MAIL FROM:<[email protected]>
550 Access denied

I've called the iNOC, they sent me to a 'systems group'. The systems
group listened carefully and wrote down the error code '550 Access
denied' before shuffling me off to the Reston office. There, I spoke
to a very nice sales person, who searched a list of voicemail boxes
she might forward me to. 

We pay MCI good money, and find ourselves unable to send mail to
[email protected] or other MCI addresses. Now I'm stuck in the MCI
phone maze. If there was an incedent warrenting an SMTP filter, 
we'd certainly deal with it if notified. I know if that happened 
with one of our downstream customers, we'd actually contact them 
before throwing in filters.

Anyone know who takes care of ?
