Is it generally accepted as being ok to directly contact the other 
servers email administrator in order to try to resolve an undelivered 
email? I am finding myself being berated by the other systems admin for

sent him an email asking him to look into the "connection reset by mail" 
message. I am a total newbie in this arena.
