I don't know where I should post this message... Since August 7th, the
server sending lyx-users mails from the list no longer resolves, ie
thales.memphis.edu (IP v4 address 126.96.36.199) no longer has a reverse

As my own mail server refuses to talk to mail servers without a reverse
entry, I could not receive any message from the list since then.
I managed to add an exception to my mail server configuration so that it
does accept incoming mail from thales.memphis.edu but I wonder if I am
the only one getting hurt by the missing reverse entry...
I thought that the mail administrator should know.
