    There shouldn't be any IP6 traffic. I only have two IPs defined on the NIC
    as IP4. Nor do I see anything in logs with the IP6 notation.

    I trust Postfix is in order. I'm not (nor I hope I haven't) conveyed
    otherwise. I have presented the question on the FreeBSD discussion list.
    And as Wietse as stated it doesn't cause loss of email. That gives time to
    either attempt to find out why it's happening or move to a different OS.
