For some reason, I was trying to send mail back and forth between one of my accounts to another. That's when I found this out:

The original message was received at Thu, 9 Sep 2004 16:30:13 -0400 from []

----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors ----- <stingray at>
(reason: 550 5.7.1 blocked according

----- Transcript of session follows -----
... while talking to
>>> MAIL From:<wgeo @>
<<< 550 5.7.1 blocked according 554 5.0.0 Service unavailable

It seems that's mail server is being blocked. It will receive mail, but is not being allowed to send any (as judged by that line in parentheses above-- is an IP address for, University of Florida, where AFN is housed). How I have my mail set up is that anything sent to stingray at will forward to stingray at (which is why you see the address up there).

The layman's summary of all this is if you are trying to send me mail (as once before), I ask that you send it to stingray at
