And logged into my hotmail as well as gmail to check the emails and no luck

I modified the /etc/resolv.conf to the nameservers of my DNS provider zoneedit.com and then restarted named and network and then tried sending emails to @hotmail and @gmail and still no luck

I again modified the /etc/resolv.conf to the DNS of my ISP (Which i called and got from my ISP E7even.com) and then restarted named and network. And then tried sending emails to @hotmail.com as well as to @gmail.com but still no luck.

I can see that from the logs it looks like it has correctly detected @hotmail.com as well as @gmail.com but I could not understand why i still did not receive any emails into both hotmail and gmail. Or log does not show of any trace of bounce back (Mailerdaemon) message.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Your domain name resolution is now ok. The mails seem to have been sent, but I can think of 2 reasons why they didn't arrive in your mailboxes:

1) You're sending from your home network, so you most probably have a dynamic IP address. Most freemail providers like Gmail and Hotmail block emails from dynamic IP addresses.
2) You're sending from the domain example.com, and it's possible that Gmail and Hotmail see that you aren't example.com and therefore block your emails.
