Incomplete three way handshake

I've got a strange problem with a single mail sender (it is one of
those large free mail providers). My mail server works well with
thousands of senders but not this one, so we have made a connection
dump and it seems that the three way handshake is not completed

Someone can give me some advice? What I see is simply a strange mss
size at the beginning of 1380 that is not very usual but I am not sure
if it is relevant or not.
