- This has to be the all-time bizarre network problem I
have seen! DNS queries /originating/ here are never
answered, no matter what name server is used. Thus, I
have no way of resolving names, and my mail server has
no way to send mail. Apparently it's too stupid to use
a smart host by IP address. I have been planning to
change mail servers, but the pace of work has
prevented me from such maintenanced tasks. The thing
that makes this so crazy is that incoming DNS --
requests from throughout the internet to resolve the
domains here -- works just fine.
Thus, the web sites here are running fine, and I can
/receive/ email. I am posting this through the browser
interface to Yahoo! Groups.
Please bear with me while I try to sort this out.
urently, the only time I can work with my provider is
from 1 thru 4 AM, and we struck out Tuesday night, and
after 36 hours being up, I slept last night!
I'll let you know when things are back.
