Muirfield advises our clients using Westnet and iiNet that they may experience issues with internet connectivity (in particular the retrieval of email and web browsing) due to problems with Westnet and iiNet’s DNS servers.

Please feel free to contact our Support Team at support@muirfield.com.au for information relating to the impact this may have on your business.

This morning we have received a number of calls from customers who use Westnet as their ISP and are reporting problems with sending emails.

If you receive a rejection stating “Domain of sender address <you@yourdomain.com.au> does not exist” then we’d suggest resending the email and monitoring it for further rejections, we are able to implement a work around for users running Microsoft Exchange Server.

This appears to be a problem with Westnet’s mail infrastructure and we are continuing to monitor the issue.
