AWS timeout

Hello list,

Bit of a weird one here. I have hosts at AWS sending mail across a
Checkpoint VPN to my main private relay server (it basically serves to relay
mail to O365 for in house applications). The problem is that the sending
client never receives BYE from server after QUIT. The mail goes through and
is delivered ok. This is bad because our timeout is 300s and if you have
anything more than a small amount of mail to send, your connections waiting
to timeout build up at the client and cause problems with applications.
