I think I had offered you a mirror and/or DNS slaves in the past. ATM 
we can't manage the Mercurial and moinmoin, but that might change in 
the near future.

I can still offer you two DNS slaves, if you're interested in that, 
but there are other free/gratis services available which can do that 
quite well.

Sounds like the TTL was too long before a change was made.

dovecot.org.            3600    IN      A 86400 IN     PTR     mkentta.iki.fi.
mkentta.iki.fi.         86400   IN      A

Looks fine, although the PTR is mkentta.iki.fi. and not dovecot.org. 
I'd use "mkentta.iki.fi" as the HELO name if sending mail from there, 
but that shouldn't be much of a problem.
    Offlist mail to this address is discarded unless
    "/dev/rob0" or "not-spam" is in Subject: header
