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 mydomain.eu
When i debug i get this:

Jul 10 16:03:55 s1 postfix/smtp[4832]: 6E19A324263C: to=<root@s1.mydomain.eu>, 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 name=s1.mydomain.eu type=MX: Host not found, try again)
My DNS is like this:

$TTL    86400
@       IN      SOA     ns.domain.eu. {dnsemail} (
                        {serial}     ; Serial, this is www.ehcp.net dns zone template file.. 
                        10800   ; Refresh
                        1200     ; Retry
                        86400  ; Expire
                        86400 ) ; Minimum

domain.eu.           IN NS   ns.domain.eu.
ns.domain.eu.        IN A    {dnsip}
ns1.domain.eu.       IN A    {dnsip}
ns2.domain.eu.       IN A    {dnsip}
dns.domain.eu.       IN A    {dnsip}
dns1.domain.eu.       IN A    {dnsip}
dns2.domain.eu.       IN A    {dnsip}
domain.eu.           IN A    {webip}
mail.domain.eu.      IN A    {mailip}
smtp.domain.eu.   IN A    {webip}
imap.domain.eu.   IN A    {webip}
webmail.domain.eu.   IN A    {webip}
ftp.domain.eu.       IN CNAME        domain.eu.
www.domain.eu.       IN CNAME        domain.eu.
domain.eu.           IN MX  10 mail.domain.eu.
domain.eu.           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/master.cf , 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.

Solved the problem.
Seems so..odd..but this is what i did:
Instead of having submission inet n - - - - smtpd at the bottom of the file i changed in top right under smtp inet n - - - - smtpd

# ================================================== ========================
# service type private unpriv chroot wakeup maxproc command + args
# (yes) (yes) (yes) (never) (100)
# ================================================== ========================
smtp inet n - - - - smtpd
submission inet n - - - - smtpd
