The Archive Server attempts to send its replies to the requestor
based on the Reply-To: or From: lines of the messages it receives,
in that order.  Recently, messages coming from BITNET sites through
WISCVM.WISC.EDU are being received here without the From: lines
being coerced into the form user%host.BITNET@WISCVM.WISC.EDU.  As we
don't have a table of BITNET hosts, these replies fail.

Thus, if you sent in a request from a BITNET host over the last
several days and didn't receive a reply, you now know why.  When
I hear that WISCVM.WISC.EDU has repaired their mailer, I'll pass
the word so that you may resume sending your requests.  (Alternately,
if anyone knows where I can periodically pick up a copy of a complete
list of BITNET hosts, I'll try to keep our mailer's database current.)

Alternatively all those on bitnet could just use domain names. .EDU seems
an appropriate domain. If those hosts on bitnet would just register their
names in a well known domain like .EDU people would be able to respond
to messages from uucp or arpanet or any on the many networks world wide
supporting the domain name convention.

That's fine, except there are many hosts, including this one, which
are not yet capable of resolving domain names.  However, I suspect
we'll have that capability in place long before the BITNET hosts adopt
domain names.  BTW, although .EDU would appear the most likely domain
name, BIT.NET, ala CS.NET, is probably the one which will end up used.
