the squirrel-gw.kal.emerge.net.au

I also have only 1 permanet ip no
my domain name was set to linux and i had squirrel-gw.kal.emerge.net.au set as an
I then changed my domain name to squirrel-gw.kal.emerge.net.au it made no difference

I just checked my email on my linux box and somebody
has sent me a email from test at golden.wattle.id.au
