.Mil mails going to .Ml – Mali

Several articles lately that apparently some folks are misspelling .mil on some unclassified mails and by omitting the i. sending to .ml.   .Ml is a Mali domain name, and Mali is not one of our bosom buddies. “Since 2015, the Department of Defense has been aware that typographical errors could result in the misdirection of […]
