we allowed our domain name to lapse with Network Solutions registrar.
as a result all of our dns records (on file with telepacific.com) ended up
on the 208.91.197.x network...
Email, websites and so on stopped working
wednesday at 6pm we resolved our problems with Network Solutions..
gradually, email is being received again from most email servers.
i have been using http://www.whatsmydns.net/
to check propagation of dns.
Since at least 9am yesterday ,
when I check for mailmx.mydomain.com I see the
correct ip address on servers just about all over the world every time
(a few in asia still report 208.91.197.x)
But, a few very important email servers are still not getting thru.
Practically speaking, is there anything that can be done in this situation
but just wait??
does anyone ever attempt contacting the other side and setting up some kind
of dns zone transfer?
