    OK. Go look at the mail log. Is there anything there denoting a connection attempt and/or rejection? Are you sure you're addressing the message correctly? Is it a valid user who has email turned on? If the connection doctor is telling you that the connection is good, the issue is the addressing  - either the user or the domain. Make sure that the domain you are sending to is properly showing in the "Provide Mail to" field of Server.app.

    Right, this means "andy@domain1.co.uk" is not a valid address on the server. Either the user doesn't exist, or, more likely, you don't have domain1.co.uk as the domain for the server. Again, check the "Provide Mail For" field of the Mail component of Server.app.

    Lets back up. Is "maria" a valid user on the server? i.e. when you configure Mail.app to authenticate to the server, that is the user that you authenticate as? Is "andy" supposed to be a user on the same server? What is the domain of the server? (please don't obsfuscate)

    If you want "andy" to receive mail, and it is *not* an account on your OS X Server, it needs to be created on the other server (the server at domain1.co.uk)

    When you say "configured the server....", do you mean setting up mail service on a  standard OS X Server installation via Server.app, or did you modify the configuration files yourself?

    Also, try sending a message to an email address not on virgin. What happens?
