Hi Bruce,

Can you post some of the error messages you get in Domino's log database log.nsf?

> Nothing on our network has changed.
It's the first thing to check when you get DNS errors, though. Try to PING the ISP, both by name and by IP-address, to see if it is network or DNS.

The problem may also be that you need a corrected DNS entry via your ISP, ALso you may need a reverse DNS listing.

I hope this helps !

I hope this helps !
