IPv6-only mail

Following an unfortunate sequence of events, my mail server is currently reachable only via IPv6. It took me a few days to even notice the lack of IPv4.

IPv4 connectivity should be back in a day or two. We fixed the root problem last night.

What I learned from this involuntary experiment: Lack of IPv4 access for a mail server is real problem in 2024, it's something that has to be fixed, but it's a surprisingly small problem.
