"The requested name is valid and was found in the database, but it
does not have the correct associated data being resolved for. The
usual example for this is a host name -> address translation attempt
(using gethostbyname or WSAAsyncGetHostByName) which uses the DNS
(Domain Name Server), and an MX record is returned but no A record
indicating the host itself exists, but is not directly reachable."
Translating, it means your server doesn't have a published IP address
any more... your admin has deleted it perhaps?
