I have not set up DNS through BIND on this server...is that needed? My domains names are set up with network solutions.

coker.com is resolving to 66.18.46.195, not 66.18.46.196. I think this is the problem.

Sorry, when it tries to send the mail out, it tries to send it to coker.com dns record which is 66.18.46.195. For some reason it is not seeing the MX record which is 66.18.46.196 (mail.coker.com).

We do get email from other sources just fine, but for some reason our box isn't looking at the MX record but instead trying to communicate with 66.18.46.195 which is not a mail server and therefor giving the connection error.

I'm really at wits end here...I've searched these forums and the internet for days now and can not find this problem any where.
