hold on, hold on... lists.ardour.org much necessarily have an MX record 
otherwise the ardour mailing lists would not work at all (the address 
ardour-dev at lists.ardour.org wouldn't work otherwise)

Although something is certainly fishy with regards to the way the ardour.org 
domain is configured. Even if an MX record must exist I can't seem to find a 
corresponding IP (the MX is hostmaster.dreamhost.com, which does not seem to 
have an A record...)

I'll try to have another look in the morning. I only have a windows machine 
here and I doubt windows can even resolve addresses properly :)

Cheers everyone :)
