Default MX record problem, dnsreport, mail working OK

This is from dnsreport page:
Code:
MX 	FAIL	MX Category
ERROR: I couldn't find any MX records for another.cl. If you want to receive E-mail on this domain, you should have MX record(s). Without any MX records, mailservers should attempt to deliver mail to the A record for another.cl. I can't continue in a case like this, so I'm assuming you don't receive mail on this domain.
Code:
Mail 	FAIL	Connect to mail servers
ERROR: I could not find any mailservers for domain.cl.
I have only one domain hosted right now. I use that same domain to configure my dns servers at ns1.another.cl being the website www.domain.cl.
I CAN send and recieve mails, at least from my cousin at gmail. I have postfix. "Maildir" option checked. "Default MX" option checked. Mail server configured at host "www" and my ip "200.104.78..." (under CNAME record)

Do you want to see my config files under /etc/bind? am I doing something wrong? I did configure the mail server after all my other servers, but that should not mean anything does it not?

You will have to add an MX record for abejasalud.cl in the authoritive nameserver for abejasalud.cl.

If this is your ISPConfig Server, go to the DNS manager, open the SOA record for abejasalud.cl and add an MX record with an empty host and mailserver abejasalud.cl

I guess you checked "Default MX" for www.abejasalud.cl only, not for abejasalud.cl (which should be on the Co-Domains tab), because there's an MX record for www.abejasalud.cl:

Ok, i did what you requested, but nothing changed. Maybe this syslog is the answer? Maybe my isp is blocking port 25?
Code:
Dec 19 01:08:55 localhost postfix/smtp[10464]: connect to mx.vtr.net[200.83.1.24]: server refused to talk to me: 554 mx01.vtr.net Service not available - access denied   (port 25)
Dec 19 01:08:55 localhost postfix/smtp[10464]: 3B5441DDE: to=<another@vtr.net>, relay=none, delay=1733, status=deferred (connect to mx.vtr.net[200.83.1.24]: server refused to talk to me: 554 mx01.vtr.net Service not available - access denied  )

Please talk to your ISP to find out if they block port 25.
