    I've got some problems with some ISP not able to send me emails...

    Here's the dig for the same site, i think there's a problem.

    Code:
    dig mx netsolutionsvenice.com
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.4.2-P2.1 <<>> mx netsolutionsvenice.com
    ;; global options:  printcmd
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 43667
    ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

    Code:
    dig mx mail.netsolutionsvenice.com
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.4.2-P2.1 <<>> mx mail.netsolutionsvenice.com
    ;; global options:  printcmd

    You created an MX record for mail.netsolutionsvenice.com, but not for netsolutionsvenice.com. If you want to use email addresses of the form user@netsolutionsvenice.com, then you need an MX record for netsolutionsvenice.com. The MX record for mail.netsolutionsvenice.com is needed only if you have email addresses of the form user@mail.netsolutionsvenice.com.

    I've created the MX record, probably the prorogation has taken more than 24h, I don't know why.
    By the way now everything works like a charm.
    I'd like to thank you Falko, you're always so kind!
