Until your box can resolve to an IP address, you will continue having tht problem. Is that the email address from which you wish to send email? Is that the email address to which you want others to send email?

How can i get it to resolve that name to an IP i have a DNS set up, the hostname and IP are in the dns and its working. I would like to send mail from that address, if it works i will add other users so they can use the internal mail server as well.


Please write back.
