DeleGate does not cache error messages.  Possibly the messages is
caused by the cache for host name resolution (usually by DNS)
where each result of resolution, success or failure (or unknown),
is cached with 10 minutes of validity.  But the cache is ignored
with "reload" from HTTP clients, issueing a HTTP request with
"Pragma:no-cache" header, so I don't understand why your reaload
does not work as you expect.  With enebled debug option for name
resolver by "RES_DEBUG=1", you will see in LOGFILE what is going
on in the resolution.  Maybe disabling the cache for the resolution
by the RESOLV parameter like "RESOLV=dns,sys" will change the

The value to enable cache is "do", other values are equals to "no".
