I have this error:

(Host or domain name not found. Name service error for type=MX: Host not found, try again)


- I can get email

- logins seem ok

- I send emails from my client with success but, the server seem not able to send it.


Any ideas?

    I'm confused.. are you  or us it a domain you are sending to?


    If its a domain you are sending to, it sounds like your server doesn't have working DNS.

    Can you surf with safari on the server?
