Mr. Hicks,
I am sorry to bother you.  I am sending this message to you because you
are the only person that I have been able to receive messages from on
the BIND mail list since last week.  I have attempted to send messages
to the administrators of the mail list with no results.  I am not sure
that they are even receiving my messages.  I am not sure if you have any
way to help me with this problem but if it is possible for you to
forward this message to the mail list administrators perhaps they will
be able to receive it and reply.  If you are unable to help I understand
and appreciate your time.

Any assistance you can provide would be appreciated.

Without the word "default"  so...

okcca.net. MX IN 10 mail.okcca.net.
