It worked for me.   Are you doing this from somewhere internal to
ymllabs.com?  Perhaps you're not getting there the way you think. 

dig mail.ymllabs.com +trace +recurse

Subject: dig +trace problem

Hash: SHA1

On my system, 
  "dig mail.ymllabs.com +trace +recurse" 
  "couldn't get address for 'ns.cyberwebglobal.info': not found" 

  "host mail.ymllabs.com"
after a bit of delay returns

I thought the above dig command should return that ip address. Am I
misinterpreting the dig parameters, or is there something strange with
that name?
