Scott, yes, you're right, I'm not editing bind and the like, this is on
the web page configuration settings of the free DNS service provider
(http://freedns.afraid.org/ on this case).

Is that : between 10 and mail.jaramelagrani.com.ar and the extra period
at the end of the name, only valid for the bind file configuration? Or
should I also update them on the page web site?

What does this mean? Is something wrong with being 60 instead of 10?
Should I update this?
