I have applied a new domain abc.com.cn. The MX record and A record has been created as

mail.abc.com.cn     x.x.x.x   A
mail.abc.com.cn                  MX

When I try to send a email to user@abc.com.cn, the following message is returned.

Do I mean to assign an IP address for the domain abc.com.cn ? Actually, I have another domain abc.com is up and running. But can I say abc.com and abc.com.cn are two separate domain within any relationship.  Will any incoming email be routed to abc.com ? Any idea how to solve the problem ?

Thanks

They're a bit incomplete and you need to tell us the format (the column names / field names for each of the entries above) because the format you have above is not standard.

That looks fine.

Can you run:

nslookup mail.abc.com.cn
nslookup -q=mx abc.com.cn

See if those return the entries you've added above.
