Re: Reason: Illegal host/domain name found

Looks like Rogers MX record was removed accidentally. Tested 2 minutes ago and got a timeout response. Record is now reinstated.

 

> server 8.8.8.8
Default Server: google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address: 8.8.8.8

> set type=mx
> rogers.com
Server: google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address: 8.8.8.8

Non-authoritative answer:
rogers.com MX preference = 10, mail exchanger = mx-rogers.mail.am0.yahoodns.net
> set type=a
> mx-rogers.mail.am0.yahoodns.net
Server: google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address: 8.8.8.8

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: mx-rogers.mail.am0.yahoodns.net
