ok I feel like a dummy but I cannot find what went wrong. All was fine until today.
All to Bellsouth, My server was down for a few hours today, think they lost me?


I have emails in queue that look like this when I try to send them:
Code:

Actualy it turns out that bellsouth (the only servers that could not see my server) were not able to locate the Name Server for the server. Seems their DNS is really slow to catch up.

I put a A record on another server they could talk to sending them to the proper IP and that cleared things up.
