Koop cool now, Gabriel, I don't wanna ruin your day but got to tell you about my problem addressing slurfish@radix.net. It got smashed back again:

Subject: Undeliverable Mail
Date: Tue, 27 Feb 1996 10:35:19 +0100 (MET)
From: Postmaster@bbdo.de
To: ben@hades.bbdo.de

Bad address - slurfish@radix.net
Error - Nameserver error: Error 0

Oh my, will this be the end of our exchange? Do something! The electronic network got us in its hands. Never know where my e-mails go...

Ben

That's odd. I get plenty of mail there, and soon this box will be invalid. You're not using the angle brackets as part of the address are you? Don't mean to insult your intelligence but you're not pulling what we in the pop milieu call a DUH, named after the Italian-American Guido caricature, or a DOH, after Matt Groening's Homer Simpson cartoon character's all too familiar swear syllable, are you now? Drop the angle brackets. My address is:

slurfish@radix.net

That's my first instinct after perusing the path strings above. If you are still having problems we'll dig deeper.

"Now, he's hell-bent for destruction, he's afraid and confused,
His brain's been mismanaged with great skill.
All he believes are his eyes
And his eyes, they just tell him lies..."
—Bob Dylan

Editor's Note: Boy, was I off base on that one. The Homer Simpson was mine.
