I would definately think so too, but from the server running squirrelmail I
can ping any internet address and browse the web fine. I can to nslookups,
whois's, anything ... works completely fine. even on addresses I have never
been to. what does mail_fetch use to pop it's mail? what does
squirrel_logger use to look up hostnames?
I really would think it was my problem too, but outside of squirellmail I
can't find any problems.

I really doubt this has to do with SquirrelMail; it is most certainly a DNS
issue. Check (and re-check) that _ALL_ your DNS servers (primary and
secondaries) are functioning and are accessible by both the web server and
the mail servers (IMAP and SMTP). Did any ACLs on firewalls or the DNS
servers themselves change?
