I know we're talked already about the problem 
I have Anthony but I'll know if someone else
use same configuration here and how
they solved it.

First I've to explain network-structure
(which must be set this way 'cause of 
security policies given by GF)

( *1* is a part of internal company network)
( *2* is private address on gateway interface)
( *3* is router interface two)
( *4* is router interface to backbone)

( *1* public IP-Range )
  ----> *2* --> *3* --> *4*

is the way how a company network
is routing. This is to prevent 
anybody to send packets to the firewall
on *2* and/or can request some services.

In that machine are two interfaces
*1* and *2* 

All services can set to use a socket (server
or client) on each interface but not 

milter-sender is using server interface 
which is in this case *2* and therefore
it can not send CallBacks (they would never
come back on a 192.168.x.x IP.

Would be nice to tell milter-sender to
use interface eth1 (which is public
and routeable via firewall rules and
has a public IP address.

Is there anybody else who has
the such a configuration ?

Best regards
