Toby would be the man, or one of the men, when it comes to MRTG since 
it was written by him (I think I have that straight--I'll hear about 
if its not).

 From looking into it further, apparently a host on our LAN was an 
open-relay.  Rather than banning that host, ORBS apparently banned 
our campus mailer.  Brilliant move.  Its things like ORBS brilliance 
that keeps people from moving to SPAM filtering solution that aren't 
home grown or their own devising.  At least that way they could 
control their access list themselves.  I e-mailed one our sysadmins; 
he hadn't even heard about it yet.  Maybe he'll fix it, maybe he 
won't.  After looking at ORBS's page and reading what they wrote, I 
don't know if I'd even bother.  They seem to be a rather cocky lot 
that see ORBS as their claim to power. Sad. :-(  Anyhow, hopefully 
you get something worked out for your MRTG stats.  Good luck!
