Don't flame me for this perhaps over simplification. NAT, Network Address
Translation, is a technique whereby a single IP is distributed for use of
multiple nodes on a network. Commonly used on networks for putting nodes
behind a firewall (IP Masquerading).
I don't know why they should have problems receiving email, I use NAT
and don't have any problems. Perhaps their addresses need a node name as
part of the address. In other words, "someone at node.domain.com".
