No I don't own  BUT I've been using it for years without problems -- until today! As I said, the hosts file is it's always been.

It seems that "localhost" just isn't local any more.

I'm trying to figure what's changed and what I should do about it.

So far, I've stopped all the internal mail to localhost.
