Bob,

If it'd help, I can likely find in my logs one (or more) instances of
the messages about problems reaching you.  As I'm not a postfix/dns
guru, I can't fully analyze them.

I don't think the .ORG nameservers are involved.  Both osagesoftware.com
(my software contracting identity) and bogofilter.org (domains, dns,
mail service, web service, etc) are hosted on my network interface
computer.  Domains that nic.osagesoftware.com can't resolve go to my DSL
ISP's name server, etc etc.  

If you (or anyone else) have the skills to analyze what's going on and
need more info, contact me off list :-)

Regards,

David
