Misconfigured DNS

by wanness / March 4, 2007 5:19 AM PST

I am running a P-IV-1.6, 93GHD's, 512 Ram, Win XP Pro, high speed cable connection. Just recently,(within the last week, week and a half) I get a lot of my emails bounced back by my mail server with the message that these messages were not delivered due to mis configured DNS. I am using OE 6.0. This will happen for a day or two, then I will have no problems for a few days and then one day I may have all emails bounced back. I do routine maintenance every week, also use AVG, (free version), Zone alarm,(free version). If any one has any input, it would sure be appreciated. Thanks, Bill

Re: misconfigured DNS from "my mail server".

The DNS isn't on your PC, but somewhere on the Internet and accessed by the mail server of your ISP. And the only one who can possibly solve the problem is the mail server manager at your ISP's. So all you can do is contact the help desk and complain.

Hope this helps.

I talked to my support group at Charter and they informed me that it was a Microsoft problem. I will call again and ask to speak to a Supervisor. Thanks, Bill

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
