    Hi. I have been trying to reach a certain website for almost a week and have not been able to get to it. (I keep getting "Server Not Found")

    I finally emailed the administrator at the site and got the following error message in return:



    Mail Delivery Subsystem mailer-daemon@googlemail.com

    4:51 AM (15 hours ago)

    This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification

    THIS IS A WARNING MESSAGE ONLY.

    YOU DO NOT NEED TO RESEND YOUR MESSAGE.

    Delivery to the following recipient has been delayed:

    admins@XXXX.com

    Message will be retried for 2 more day(s)

    Technical details of temporary failure:
    DNS Error: DNS server returned general failure


    Anyone know what is going on ?

    DNS Domain Name System, the website is off line or your bookmark has the wrong IP associated with the domain name
    How is obama working out for you?

    It tells me I'm ok.

    So maybe the site is offline?

    Okay, good deal just making sure.
