Thanks for the info. I think I have traced it to my DNS entry for the MX 
record have a fairly long timeout, and since keeps a cached entry 
to its fullest extent, it took longer for the IP change to be "seen" by the servers than "any" server, which just wait for the domain DNS 
entry, which I'm not responsible for.

Now everything came in, kind of a avalanche effect ;o)

Sorry for bothering everybody.
