Author Topic: The infamous "Failed to get AAAA from MX or your DOMAIN" (resolved)  (Read 2931 times)

I, like some others, am tripping on the well-known 'Failed to get AAAA from MX or your DOMAIN' error.  This is surprising, since the previous test (sending mail) passed with flying colors.

I provided an e-mail address of ''; 'host' provides the "right" results:

joshua@nyus:~$ host has address has IPv6 address 2001:470:1f05:c:: mail is handled by 10
joshua@nyus:~$ host 2001:470:1f05:c:: domain name pointer

Any thoughts?  I wonder if it is tripping on the fact that itself is not yet IPv6-ready.

Edit: I think I may have been the victim of my own impatience.  I suspect that there was still a DNS cached record somewhere.  Waiting another few hours cleared things up.
