we have a mail server down -- i repeat, we we have a mail server down

The mail server for the roepcke.com domain just went down (unexpectedly). I haven't contacted my ISP yet, I'm not sure how long the outage will be.

Important Update: The mail server is back up, however, it has been configured to disallow all mail from yahoo.com and hotmail.com.

I hope that doesn't include messages from mailing lists I'm subscribed to where the From: header is someone from yahoo.com or hotmail.com! Lots of people sign onto mailing lists with hotmail accounts.

Another Update: Turns out I misunderstood. The new configuration affects outbound mail only, not inbound mail. (I think)
