I understand the normal reason for this, but when the main mailserver
is in the same network as the main nameserver and this network goes
down it doesn't matter if you have a secondary nameserver in another
network since the sites and mail won't arrive anyway ;)

What if I changed the netmask to accept 212.102.x.x for my network?
Since there is another router/firewall in front of my firewall (that
my ISP uses) this should be a problem? (Or am I completely missing
something here...hehe...)

Kind regards,
