Wild guess: Look at your resolv.conf files.

But, with the amount of blanking out of details in your reports, they're
next to useless for anyone to diagnose anything with. Have a look at
your message headers, if you see the same addresses as you've been
hiding, then there's no point hiding them. Post your error reports with
the real addresses showing.

Isn't that the kludge suggested for IPv6 problems? (I can't remember.)
If so, look into either getting IPv6 working properly, or *completely*

[tim@localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored. I
read messages from the public lists.
