Bellsouth clueful?

Anyone at bellsouth home that can provide some insite (mostly eta) on the
email-server outage going on.

I tried the normal paths:

    (reason: 550 Invalid recipient: <>)

I have loved ones overseas, and rumor has it they could send email.
Bellsouth needs to get this fixed ASAP.
