That should not be necessary, however the "fast" server (that you don't
have posting permission on) should greet you with a 201 line. Just try
"telnet your.server.example.com 119", look at the first number it
writes, then enter "quit" and press the [enter] key.

What happens if you swap the configuration line sets for your hosts,
putting the fast one first, then earthlink?

In any case, leafnode 1.9.23 will allow you to declare "nopost" for a
server that you do not ever want your postings sent to. Note that 1.9.23
is not yet released. That way, you could in any case list your
"fast-download" server first like this:

server = fast.example.com
nopost = 1

server = post-allowed.example.com

All postings would go to post-allowed.example.com.
