For your information, I have a linux/redhat testbox running the same
INN vers. (inn-BETA-20000703, cnfs/tradindexed)  - and I see the same
result connecting from a client not registered in DNS.
It's also returning "Unknown host" and Outlook_Express or Tin is terminated
with an error message.

"grep herror config.cache" on my linux box gives:

Due to the error above I have setup another unix-box, aix 4.2.1, running
INN 2.2.2 so clients not registered in DNS can connect to this machine.
-until the problem is solved.

So I really hope you'll get it fixed.
