It didn't work that way for me.  I had been forwarding my mail from my
prairienet.org account to my concentric.net account.  I had my mail
configured so that the mail would look like it was coming from my
prairienet account even though it was posted through concentrc.
Eventually concentric increased security, and then concetric bounced
all my posts.  I changed configuration so that I quit trying to post
as prairienet, but it still didn't work.  So I reconfigured smail to
post a satelite system without a smart host and it works again.
