Subject: WorldNet - Do they know what mail is?

Somehow it does not suprise me that WorldNet.Att.Com has yet to get a 
clue about email.

So far, my mailq is full of "No route to host" for a host called
	postoffice.worldnet.att.com

Now, checking DNS I see that host doesn't exist and now the MX points to

	mailhost.worldnet.att.com

So the mail in my queue will never arrive -- I assume that they have
changed their DNS entry from postoffice to mailhost.

Hmm, ok, unfortunately, mailhost returns
	mailhost.worldnett.att.net: Unknown server error

Well, guess Worldnet customers get no email. Certainly I think nearly
nothing has managed to get to them from my mailing lists and I have
yet to receive anything from them.

One machine to handle all Worldnet mail? Oh boy... will they ever learn?
.... and the company that will bring it to you... Yeh right :-) Won't
bring them email!
