Actually, the IPS's DNS entry is for reverse lookup. I suspect that the 
problem might be that a forward lookup returns a different IP address. That 
is:

domain.net --> 172.1.1.1       While
209.1.1.1 --> domain.net

Because the domain is redirected normally to domaindirect servers. I 
probably need to change the primary DNS entries, but I'm not certain yet.

GOD!!!! I hate the hoops we need to go through to avoid filthy spammers!!!!
