>From a server that goes through Verio, on certain domain, when
I invoke: host certaindomain.net, "certaindomain.net has address" with no MX information and even an occassional
"Host not found, try again.". Running the same invocation of
host from a dsl that goest through Alternet.net yields the MX

Is this a network issue? I'm having the same problem with Pine,
it will say "unable to access MX records" and give up.

Any information would be appreciated, I don't have any experience
with the 'host' command and am unsure of what server(s)  it
gets it's info from.
