Sorry about that! I screwed up the DNS for the PGLAF server, and basically had IPv6 partially configured.
I think it's now fixed. The good news is dual stack (IPv6 and IPv4) is now enabled.
Why was I making changes? Because the afore-mentioned lifetime free service from Oracle emailed me on July 16, saying that I was using too many DNS queries. It wasn't clear whether they would bill me, or just refuse to handle requests beyond the number allowed.
So, I moved pglaf.org to Cloudflare, but neglected to move all of the entries. Plus I created a nice new IPv6 entry for Mail Exchange (MX record) but didn't configure Postfix to actually utilize IPv6.
So, my fault. Let me know of any other anomalies... I hope that there were proper bounce messages, for anything that didn't get through.
Anyone who sent a message, but isn't sure whether it arrived, can check the list archives here: https://lists.cpunks.org/pipermail/cypherpunks/2019-July/date.html
