DNS failures with mailman.opensound.com

Postby tabicat » Mon Sep 27, 2010 2:01 pm

Every month I get an email from "mailman.opensound.com" reminding me of my subscription to the oss-devel mailing list. This email tells me I can go to http://mailman.opensound.com/mailman/options/oss-devel/timur%40freescale.com to modify my subscription.

The problem is that mailman.opensound.com does not exist. There is no DNS entry for this URL. Even if I use a third-party DNS lookup web site, like http://www.dnswatch.info/, it says that mailman.opensound.com is not a known address.

Searching for mailman.opensound.com. A record at C.ROOT-SERVERS.NET. [] ...took 3 ms
Searching for mailman.opensound.com. A record at e.gtld-servers.net. [] ...took 14 ms
Searching for mailman.opensound.com. A record at ns32.domaincontrol.com. [] ...took 92 ms

Nameserver ns32.domaincontrol.com. reports: No such host mailman.opensound.com

I also tried to send email to webmaster@opensound.com, but that email bounced:

Delivery has failed to these recipients or distribution lists:

The recipient's e-mail address was not found in the recipient's e-mail system. Microsoft Exchange will not try to redeliver this message for you. Please check the e-mail address and try resending this message, or provide the following diagnostic text to your system administrator.

The following organization rejected your message: compusonic.fi.

On a side note, it took me several tries to post this message because I could not read the confirmation code. It's just too hard to read it, and I kept getting it wrong.

I was informed there was a server change, but it's still incomplete I guess... I think this address works if you'd like to email the mailinglist server admin. Also, thanks for informing that the visual confirmation is too hard - I've relaxed the settings.
