Perhaps someone could explain what's going on and suggest how I can go
about straightening out this problem. I have no idea where to start
looking for the problem.
One item that probably matters: My domain is hosted at Speakeasy and I
don't maintain my own mailserver.
Problem #1 - This one has been fixed in the sense that it has gone away,
but I'd still like to have some idea of what the problem was. I was
dealing with a company in Maryland. For two years, e-mail worked
perfectly. Abruptly, their e-mail to me just disappeared - no bounce, no
error messages. It was just gone. They were able to send to my gmail
account so we had a workaround. Six weeks later, the problem went away
and it has worked perfectly since.
Problem #2 - This is a current problem. A company in New York is unable
to send anything to me. This time, they get an error message that the
process timed out without being able to send. I can send to them and
they are able to send to other addresses not on my domain.
One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them,
One OS to bring them all, and in the Darkness bind them,
In the land of Redmond, where the Sales Reps lie.
