I believe this is what you are looking for:


How to use Nslookup to verify DNS configuration
At a command prompt, type Nslookup, and then press ENTER.

Type server <IP address>, where IP address is the IP address of your external DNS server.

Type set q=MX, and then press ENTER.

Type <domain name>, where domain name is the name of an external mail domain, and then press ENTER. The mail exchanger (MX) resource record for the domain that you entered should be displayed. If the MX record is not displayed, DNS is not configured to resolve external domain names.
