I should add that the number of erroneous emails sent to the old mail server has decreased. From Thursday through Saturday it went down to zero and I was hoping the problem had gone away. Then it started up again on Sunday, but at lower volume than before. Interestingly, most of the emails

In the end, he seems to be saying that we have a name server giving wrong results, which would make sense, except I can't figure out which name servers he's referring to. You'll see below where he says the NS0 name server points to NS1 and that will point to mail2.bcwebhost.net and your
