My nameservers aren't down very often. Usually when my DSL is
down, it's down for other reasons (such as my ISP's router

I run sendmail behind my firewall, i.e., port 25 is closed from
the outside. I run fetchmail to get my mail and use sendmail
for local delivery... as well as sending mail outbound.
