Not necessarily correct. It takes approximately an hour or two for my
messages to be posted. Yet I can send myself mail through and internet
forwarding account, and have it back in 4 to 15 minutes depending on
traffic and time of day. I don't know how Unix DNS servers work, but on NT
a DNS file is cached after the first mail to that address.
