About a week ago, I switched my domains over to a new hosting provider. Almost everything seems to be getting to the new server, except replies to SOMEHOW, they're STILL arriving at the old server. A few other things may be doing this too.

I can't seem to get the old host to remove the DNS records from their box, but my domain's NS server should be pointing to the new host anyway. Can anyone tell me why old DNS records might still be causing problems?

In fact, querying the old nameservers directly no longer show any IP address for the domains in question. Also, all the root servers, I have confirmed, point to the new nameservers. So why should mail still be being delivered to the OLD server? Is someone caching it beyond the TTL?
