            'set the addresses
            mail.From = New Net.Mail.MailAddress("username@domain.com")'this email address does exist
            mail.To.Add("username@domain.com") 'this email does exits
            'set the content

Sounds like the mailserver you are using only accepts mail for its domain and it's not a mail relay used for outbound mail. Are you sure there isn't a separate mailserver for outgoing mail?

After the
 Dim smtp As New Net.Mail.SmtpClient("mx1.server.com")
Try adding in
smtp.Credentials = New System.Net.NetworkCredential("username", "password")
