Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-796) Do also query authoritative nameservers to obtain MX record
Date Tue, 10 Jul 2007 13:26:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-796?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12511434

Ralf Hauser commented on JAMES-796:

thx for the feedback - we found the culprit, a large Swiss ISP

the DNS servers from sunrise sometimes do no recursive lookup. For zunft-oberstrass.ch they
return no MX record and no authoritative nameserver.
For gmx.ch they return both.

"",// (ns1.sunrise.ch)
"",// (ns2.sunrise.ch)
"",// (ns3.sunrise.ch)
"",// (ns4.sunrise.ch)

if a work-around is really easy as in the current situation, wouldn't it make sense to spend
the extra few LOC and do that recursive lookup ourselves in http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/james/server/trunk/core-library/src/main/java/org/apache/james/dnsserver/DNSServer.java?view=markup

> for example for zunft-oberstrass.ch
> DNSServer.lockup("zunft-oberstrass.ch", Type.MX, "MX")
> will return null, but
> DNSServer.lockup("zunft-oberstrass.ch", Type.NS, "NS")
> will return two authoritative nameservers, which then can be queried and return the MX
record for zunft-oberstrass.ch.
