To "steve at turnbull.sk.tsukuba.ac.jp"?

I don't see either one yet, but that could be my network.  The
university just upgraded the network and past experience suggests
things are likely to be unreliable here until New Year's.

Is your mail client configured to use those hosts (that would be very
unusual), or just your local ISP connection?

I see.  Love people who care more about names than functionality, but
I guess that's the marketing department.  I'll see if your mail comes
through in the next few hours.
