Thanks, Florian030 but that didn't seem to work either.

Here's the new messages in mail.err

And here is the mail.log file after i sent a test message today (Feb 22):

Feb 21 06:47:06 server1 postfix/qmgr[14337]: 75A0F32201A: from=<>, size=1596, nrcpt=1 (queue active)

I'm beginning to think it may be an issue with my internet provider or my DNS zone files at the registrar

As always, any help is appreciated.
