Our problem seemd to be centered around MX records.?!
What do I need to post (file chuncks, etc.) to aid getting help?
The mailserver must have access to the DNS, or it will need to
forward all email to a mail relay which does have working DNS. It is
likely that if you add the IP address of a working nameserver to /etc/
resolv.conf on your mailserver, it will become happy again until you
can fix your own DNS.
Otherwise, you can change the "relayhost" setting /usr/local/etc/
# In the case of SMTP, specify a domain, host, host:port, [host]:port,
# [address] or [address]:port; the form [host] turns off MX lookups.
# If you're connected via UUCP, see also the default_transport
#relayhost = $mydomain
#relayhost = [gateway.my.domain]
#relayhost = [mailserver.isp.tld]
Uncomment the last and replace the stuff within the square brackets
with the IP address of your ISP's mailserver...
