The long-and-short of it is that I did a grep -r -w though.org after my network friend mentioned how he finally got mail thru to me. sendmail (/etc/mail/* and /etc/namedb/*, and, for that matter, /etc) were okay. This was on my primary nameserver, ns1.thought.org. I 2-checked on other platforms, in /etc/mail/* and same deal. I'll add dnsstuff.com to my hotlist. Right now I use (I believe) dnsreport.com which I check infrequently. *Too* infrequently, obliously! ...I just made some updates and fixed things that were flagged in red. So I'll see how much e-homework I get now; or if my profs got pissed and flunked me for this.... thank you for your time, gary PS: I'be got a pop/imap question...but that can wait.... -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public service Unix _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
