have you registered this host name in your public DNS Zone file (usually at your ISP or domain registrar)?

Perhaps you should review this guide?  http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/exchange/guides/E2k3TransnRouting/0fe7e642-daec-4b1e-b9a9-836e38f2a776.mspx?mfr=true

You need to enter a HOST record and an MX record in your PUBLICLY hosted DNS ZONE file.  This is not something you enter in your own server... it has to be out on the Internet where other servers will find it.  

Since your domain was registered at www.austdomains.com you need to go to that site and use the Domain Manager to modify the DNS records where you will enter these two records.  If you are unsure of how to do that, click on the help feature of the Domain Manager site.

This is why I recommended that you review the overal idea of these things...     primary and secondry are your OUTBOUND nameservers.  Those are only for you to use on your server so that you can reach the Internet from your LAN.

Since you need others to find YOU, you will need to put at least TWO if not THREE records in your domain manager.

If you are hosting a website somewhere other than your server you will just want to put the FQDN as a HOST record

server.azizcomputers.com.au.  7200   in     A  

(the 7200 TTL -- time to live -- is just a suggestion.  there may be no choice on this at the ISP)

then you need to designate your HOST (server.azizcomputers.com.au) as your mail server for the domain with an MX record:

azizcomputers.com.au.   7200     in     MX     0     server.azizcomputers.com.au.

after completeing these, you can check them at either www.dnsreport.com or www.mxtoolbox.com
