Dear HP:

If your not going to support IPv6 can you at least not return SRVFAIL 
when asked for an AAAA record:

root at spoons:/etc/mail # dig AAAA onramp01.hpeprint.com

; <<>> DiG 9.8.3-P4 <<>> AAAA onramp01.hpeprint.com
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 61583
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;onramp01.hpeprint.com.		IN	AAAA


And what genius thought that emailing documents to printers was a good 
idea in the first place?   Nothing like taking graphics, turning it into 
7 bit text, and sending it through a system never intended for the 
purpose.   Supporting luser email is a big enough pain in the arse, now 
I have to deal with your idiotic printers as well?   Gee thanks!

Mark
