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.
