Subject: [lug] dns mx record
} Host unknown (Name server:
} xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.domain.com.: host not found)
} where all the x's are the ip address of newmailhost.
Your MX record for that must read like so:
IN MX 10 newmailhost.domain.com.
If it reads:
IN MX 10 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
DNS assumes you have a server called xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.domain.com.
Also make sure newmailhost has its own A record, as
newmailhost IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
If you have any further problems, send me your zone file and I'll take a look
