We recently para-virtualised a Xen / CentOS box which is running script

We've tried the solutions from Googling this error (such as restarting
Apache etc), but without success.
Why am I wasting your time with a Linux upgrade issue? Well,
gethostbyname() seems to resolve the IP every time. Manual lookups on
from the server seem to work with no problems.
Any help greatly appreciated. Should I perhaps be pointing this out on
the 'internals' list?
I feel its something do with your DNS settings and/or the server.
If that's not the problem then just as a temp solution add your SMTP
server's address provided it has a static IP (99.9% it has) to your
It should not give trouble then.
