SL4NT 1.4 waits only 10 seconds after connecting to the SMTP server for the
initial greeting of the SMTP server (220 ...). In case that the SMTP server
is configured to perform reverse DNS resolution of the connecting client, it
can take more than 10 seconds before the SMTP server replies.
A DNS problem is probably causing this slow response from the SMTP server.
You can use Telnet to verify if my suspicion is correct.
You should upgrade to the current version v3.1 (the upgrade is free!). This
version has a default timeout of 30 seconds. This timeout value can be
configured in the registry, should an even higher value be necessary.
You should upgrade to v3.1 anyway, even if you solve the (suspected) DNS
