the company that was given a monopoly to maintain the domain name 
system by INTERNIC (ie: the translation tables that convert domain 
adressing to IP addressing) fouled up royally this week and seeded  
a great many of the primary routers with incorrect tables during 
their regular update process ... this in turn caused a cascade effect 
that the support folk are still trying to clean up ... 

hopefully the problem with "undeliverables" will clear in short 
order.  in interim if its a problem, and if your reader supports it, 
set up a "if sender address = x then delete message" filter
