mail delays due to Sprint

You may notice some delays on mail propagated through the telecine
mailing list, due to ns1.sprintlink.net's reverse-domain nameservice
being down for a couple of days.  Some sites on the net do a
reverse-lookup for smtp delivery, and if the IP address doesn't
resolve, they refuse the connection.  There is a ton of mail queueing
for a few sites (like aol.com for example).

Did you know queueing is the only word in the English language with 5
vowels in a row?  ;-)  

Sprint promises the problem will be fixed tonight, Feb. 1.
