    This means your MX record is pointing to that machine but the machine is not configured to accept mail for the domain. you need to add your domain name to mydestinations.

    Hi topdog,
    where to find mydestinations?
    is it /etc/mail/mailertable ? or /etc/mail access?

    sorry i thought you are using postfix with sendmail you need to add your domain name to /etc/mail/local-host-names
