this looks like more of a DNS issues, have you done lookups on the dns name for the domain?

Hi,

the server that returns that error message is not able to find a MX record (mail exchanger) in the DNS. Do a "nslookup -qt=mx xxxxx.com" on your client and on the affected server. Is there any difference? If so, check the DNS configuration of the server.

Regards
Kurt

when you do your nslookup, type the follow "set type=mx" then do a look and see if you get a return for your mx records...

>the results are the same ruuning you nslookup command.

did you specify the option "-qt=mx"?

If I do a lookup to your domain, I get this:

nslookup -qt=mx vinduvin.com

vinduvin.com    MX preference = 10, mail exchanger = mail.vinduvin.com
vinduvin.com    MX preference = 20, mail exchanger = email01.vinduvin.com

vinduvin.com    nameserver = ns2.vinduvin.com
vinduvin.com    nameserver = ns1.vinduvin.com
mail.vinduvin.com       internet address = 209.164.47.70
email01.vinduvin.com    internet address = 209.164.47.70

I need to know if there is a difference on the client and server
