does anyone have a suggestion on the DNS error here ? I can resolve the name pinging it or is this because of a incorrect setting ?

Check out: http://www.mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=mx%3aseautoman.com

your domain is what should be used rather than the host name.  This shows your MX record is set to use mail.seautoman.com and www.seautoman.com.

Delete the entry for www.seautoman.com in the MX records as this points to 0.0.0.0 which will cause problems, also change the MX record that is using mail.seautoman.com to a value of 5 or 10 as 0 is often ignored.
