Yes. Judging by the output of nslookup and ping.

I tried this, but the output was over my head.  Another thing. The
fetchmail (and gnus) problem is intermittent. Most of the time I get
the error as above, but now and then fetchmail works as expected.

Remember that this error occurs in a trial install of squeeze.  On the
same hardware my lenny install, which I'm using now, works fine.

I suspect some misconfiguration of the squeeze system as it relates to
dns for applications.
