My guess is that vintagecomputerfederation.org
<vcf-midatlantic at lists.vintagecomputerfederation.org> was rolled into
vcfed.org as a slave A alias top free up an IP address, The master DNS
record was removed.  After completion any email to
vintagecomputerfederation would have no routing instructions.  They could
have made this domain be an email routing MX alias but they did not.
Probably better that they standardized things.  This is the 2nd time DNS
effected the hosting account, hopefully the last.
