Not a useful problem description. What,
exactly, did you do? What, exactly, happened
when you did it?

nslookup xxxx.com

Can you hide any more useful information?

Re: sendmail error

two thoughts.

1) the sendmail daemon does NOT need to be running in order to SEND mail so ignore that for now, it is only for receiving and queue processing.

2) skip the mailx client and use sendmail -v -s test someone@somewhere.com
This is a test mail
EOF

what do you get ?

Really? Amazing. Or did you think that any
non-psychic could determine your network
problem from information like this:?

> # traceroute xxxx.xxxx.xxx
> traceroute to xxxx.xxxx.xx (192.xxx.x.x), 30 hops max, 40 byte packets
> [...]

I'd guess that something is wrong somewhere
in your X's.


By the way, I know nothing, but a search for
the error message found this Forum thread,
where someone claimed that it wasn't very
important.
