Re: Sending emails over Ipv6

It may also be related to the "Happy Eyeballs" RFC for IPv6:

This is non-deterministic in that is simply chooses the "fastest" transport in a dynamic way. As long as both transports are working well, one will see an apparently random mix.

Quoting briefly:

An application that uses a Happy Eyeballs algorithm checks both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity (with a preference for IPv6) and uses the first connection that is returned. The addresses are often chosen from the DNS with a round-robin algorithm.[3] Implementations of Happy Eyeballs stacks exist in Google's Chrome web browser, Firefox version 13, and Mac OS X Lion[4] (although Lion uses the fastest connection, rather than preferring IPv6).[5] Happy Eyeball testing was part of World IPv6 Day in 2011.[6]

Strange title for an RFC, but it is for real and since RFC 6555 is on the standards track we may see this kind of behavior from more and more applications (it is more likely to be implemented in an application then in the OS kernel).
