QMail Problem -- One domain not receiving E-mails

I'm running Linux on an Apache server and I'm having trouble with QMail.  I have been testing the process of sending various e-mails by using a standard CGI/Perl script.  I am able to send e-mails to every domain I've tried except one (i.e. @xyz.com)

Here's a sample of the error log when I try to send mail from my website 'mydomainname.com' to the e-mail (i.e. @xyz.com)

---------
Jun 13 11:03:08 216-55-142-48 qmail: 1150221788.507825 delivery 465: failure: Sorry,_I_couldn't_find_any_host_named_mail.mydomainname.com._(#5.1.2)
---------

What does that mean?

And, in the world of Linux and QMail -- if one particular domain is hanging up (not sending correctly), such as the case with xyz@com, is this a problem with QMail, my CGI script, or the recipient's e-mail box (@xyz.com)?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

The error means, that best MX for xyz.com domain is mail.mydomainname.com (at least so answers Your linux resolver).
unfortunatelly there is no dns entry for mail.mydomainname.com (no IP for this name).

Thanks --

I traced the problem to the qmail/control/me page.

The variable was set incorrectly -- so the e-mails were kicked back.
