    The company that owns and operates the mail servers is SmarTech. Based in Chattanooga, TN, this company is headed by its Republican donor founder Jeff Averbeck. That's where the email servers are. He's been a tech resource for the GOP since 2000.

    •  But Coptix is a backup (0+ / 0-)

      or something like that?  Coptix is somewhere in the gwb43.com mix.

      If Coptix has nothing to do gwb43.com, why does Rove have a brochure of a domain server company (of which there are thousands) that's in the middle of Chattafreakinnooga, TN?

        The RNC could use some of their services.

        The technology infrastructure is SmarTech's. That was easy to find out. The email servers belong to SmarTech.

          server is trespassers-w.net, which is administered by Coptix.  I'm not sure what an "alternate" email service is- as far as I know, my company doesn't have backups.

          Regardless, Coptix is related to gwb43.com, in some way, shape, or form.  I just can't figure out how, and if it means anything...

            smartech has its own name servers, translates a host name to an ip address. For the gwb43.com domain they list two name servers, one from smartech (authoritative) and the other from trespassers-w.

            See:

            gwb43.com. 2560 IN SOA ns1.cha.smartechcorp.net. hostmaster.gwb43.com. 1175541089 16384 2048 1048576 2560

            gwb43.com. 259200 IN NS ns1.cha.smartechcorp.net.
            gwb43.com. 259200 IN NS a.ns.trespassers-w.net.

            Pretty esoteric relationship from Rove's perspective, as he's probably buying web site design from Coptix, among others. But that really has nothing to do with the email servers. Those are smartech's and have been in use for years.
