Here is the original mail....from matthew kaufman

"Root nameserver F is not reachable from my network."

Subject: root servers more debug data
Sender: owner-nanog at merit.edu
Status: O

At present I am able to reach root nameservers A, B, C, D, E, G, I
and receive valid replies to a name request.

Root nameserver F is not reachable from my network.

Root nameserver H is responding to all my requests with the
 4-bit Response Code field set to the value 0x03 ("Name error")

This is confusing a fair number of things.

 on and successfully receiving mail from.
