E-Mail Arriving Slow - DNS Problem?

I have a few users in my organization complaining that they are receiving e-mail messages hours and even days after they were sent. Outgoing e-mail is working flawlessly.

We are hosting the primary DNS server for the domain in house, and have secondary DNS servers with Verizon. There is one MX record for the domain, and it exists on all name servers for the domain - the primary and all secondaries.

Can  someone check my DNS zone records for my domain and tell me if they  see any problems that would be causing this? My domain is mbly.com.

Any criticisms and/or advice will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

As far as I can see, your MX record is registered to ns1.mbly.com. This also looks like it is your DNS server. Do you use that as an SMTP gateway too? If not, then you would have to change so that the MX record refers to your SMTP server or SMTP gateway

Yes, it is also my SMTP server.

My A record this domain's web server is 68.160.78.231, but when I use the tools at www.dnsstuff.com to search for A records, it does not find this record, which leads me to believe I may have DNS problems (this coupled with the e-mail delay problem).

Can you (or anyone else out there) see any problems with this domain's DNS "stuff"???
