Default Unable to send or receive emails

Hi everyone,

I've installed ISPConfig 3 on my VPS using the brilliant tutorial here: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=56541

However, if I go to send an email to an account I've set up on the server I get the following error:

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

Technical details of permanent failure:
DNS Error: DNS server returned answer with no data
I've checked my DNS records for that domain, and they are as follows:
HTML Code:
setanta	A		80.xx.xx.xx	
mail.gravex.co.uk	MX	10	80.xx.xx.xx
NS		ns1.6sync.net.	
NS		ns2.6sync.net.	
NS		ns3.6sync.net.	
ftp	A		80.xx.xx.xx
mail	A		80.xx.xx.xx
dail	A		80.xx.xx.xx
www	A		80.xx.xx.xx
.	A		80.xx.xx.xx
I've also tried to send an email from squirrelmail. I've had no errors come back but I've not had the e-mail come through either.

I'm not sure what's going on, as I thought adding mail.gravex.co.uk as an MX record would work, but I don't think it has. What do I need to do to make it work?
