Exclamation Can't receive email from external domains

I can't receive email from external domains, i can send mails from my server using Outlook and Squirrel mail but i can't receive any .
I use Debian 6 and Postfix on VPS.

In Yahoo i get this message :

Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address.

No MX or A records for
When i debug i get this:

Jul 10 16:03:55 s1 postfix/smtp[4832]: 6E19A324263C: to=<>, orig_to=<root>, relay=
none, delay=1494, delays=1477/0.02/16/0, dsn=4.4.3, status=deferred (Host or domain name not fou
nd. Name service error for type=MX: Host not found, try again)
My DNS is like this:

$TTL    86400
@       IN      SOA {dnsemail} (
                        {serial}     ; Serial, this is dns zone template file.. 
                        10800   ; Refresh
                        1200     ; Retry
                        86400  ; Expire
                        86400 ) ; Minimum           IN NS        IN A    {dnsip}       IN A    {dnsip}       IN A    {dnsip}       IN A    {dnsip}       IN A    {dnsip}       IN A    {dnsip}           IN A    {webip}      IN A    {mailip}   IN A    {webip}   IN A    {webip}   IN A    {webip}       IN CNAME       IN CNAME           IN MX  10           IN TXT "v=spf1 a mx"


*                       IN A    {webip}
Need to mention also , i changed default port 25 for SMTP to 587 by adding submission inet n - - - - smtpd in /etc/postfix/ , port 25 was bloked by ISP.
I appreciate any help in solving this .

P.S. Sorry in advance if i ask stupid questions i'm just a beginner.
