Hmm, the two of you seem to be having fun,

Lucas's mail just got rejected by codalist because the headers were
corrupted, and it also keeps rejecting Ivan's mails because the account
he uses isn't subscribed.

Correct, but that was only fixing a bug introduced 2 weeks ago in CVS.

On the other hand there is a libc/resolver problem on RedHat 9, maybe
other systems as well. According to the manpage, using anything like
res_query or res_search will implicitly initialize the resolver. However
on RedHat 9 this doesn't happen (correctly) and in fact leaves
libresolve in a badly configured state.

What I noticed was that it would only send queries to a locally running
nameserver cache daemon and never actually try to talk to the configured
DNS servers. The solution on that particular machine was to simply start
nscd as root, and it will run in the background and handle the name
lookups correctly.

So as root, start the 'nscd' binary and venus might just start working
