This may be a problem with reverse DNS lookups, a problem with MX records,
but without more information, I don't think we can help you.

Hello all,

I administrer an internal DNS and sendmail server for a company.  A couple
of people internally are trying to send mail to  without
success.  Any workstation internal to our network cannot resolve that
domain.  Yet externally I've been told it works no problem.

Our DNS forwards our request directly to the root servers... any ideas as to
what the hell is going on?

Thanks in advance!  Pete.
