The problem is that does not exist. There is no DNS entry for this URL. Even if I use a third-party DNS lookup web site, like, it says that is not a known address.

Searching for A record at C.ROOT-SERVERS.NET. [] ...took 3 ms
Searching for A record at [] ...took 14 ms
Searching for A record at [] ...took 92 ms

Nameserver reports: No such host

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.
