comment Why can my EC2 instance no longer connect to itself using its public DNS entry?
Thanks, but internet connectivity was fine. It turned out the problem was caused on Amazon's side, see below.

No, I can't. When started on the instance itself, traceroute says ec2-xx-xxx-xxx-xxx.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com: Name or service not known. I guess this is a genuine DNS issue, not a connectivity one.

For example, if you are active in a forum called 'lolcat', you might use the myname+lolcat@example.com address there. This way, if people use the e-mail link displayed in your forum posts, you can have a client-side filtering rule to make sure that all these mails get flagged/through your spam filter/sorted into a folder/you name it.

Right, it didn't work for me either, and as I couldn't find any info on the web, I decided to ask here :-)
