ipf/ipmon & mail to hotmail?



My system is configured to reject any incoming connection unless
it's to port 25 or 53. ipmon is used to log all blocked connections.
Here's a logfile entry which made me curious:

@0:28 b 216.32.243.150,25 -> 63.195.85.27,1524 PR tcp len 20 52 -AF

This happens when I send e-mail to a hotmail address. Does anyone
know what this might be? maillog shows:
relay=mail6.hotmail.com. [216.32.243.135], stat=Sent
so it's a different address. Can someone explain this to me?
Does the hotmail host "answer" from a different IP address?

Thanks!
