Re: Yahoogroups

  • From: Xam R. Time
  • Date: Sat Dec 21 12:21:01 2002


$ host -t mx groups.yahoo.com
groups.yahoo.com is an alias for groups1.vip.scd.yahoo.com.
groups1.vip.scd.yahoo.com mail is handled by 1 mta2.grp.scd.yahoo.com.
groups1.vip.scd.yahoo.com mail is handled by 1 mta3.grp.scd.yahoo.com.
groups1.vip.scd.yahoo.com mail is handled by 1 mta1.grp.scd.yahoo.com.

ok, so:

$ host mta2.grp.scd.yahoo.com
mta2.grp.scd.yahoo.com has address 66.218.66.217
$ host mta3.grp.scd.yahoo.com
mta3.grp.scd.yahoo.com has address 66.218.66.218
$ host mta1.grp.scd.yahoo.com
mta1.grp.scd.yahoo.com has address 66.218.66.216

Where's the RFC1918 in that? 

Maybe the problem is fixed already.
