Actually, the IPS's DNS entry is for reverse lookup. I suspect that the
problem might be that a forward lookup returns a different IP address. That
domain.net --> 126.96.36.199 While
188.8.131.52 --> domain.net
Because the domain is redirected normally to domaindirect servers. I
probably need to change the primary DNS entries, but I'm not certain yet.
GOD!!!! I hate the hoops we need to go through to avoid filthy spammers!!!!
