It sounds like you have a DNS issue in your NIE configuration. Do DNS
lookups work elsewhere on your Newton, i.e. can you browse
http://www.unna.org/ in your browser
(Courier/NetHopper/NewtsCape/etc.)? If you can, try "www.unna.org" for
the Server instead (just "unna.org" should work as well and seems to,
but doen't hurt to try).
