You have DNS configuration problem.

The domain domain.hylix.com
Code:
toni@mario:~$ host -t MX domain.hylix.com
domain.hylix.com does not exist, try again
toni@mario:~$ host domain.hylix.com
domain.hylix.com does not exist, try again
just doesn't exist.

(You seem to have hylix.com configured correctly, though.)

what should i have to do? do i have to give DNS entry or confgure DNS server in my local machin? or i have to configure other machin as DNS server? and in that server(dns sever) i have to give Mail server's ip address entry? i think when u try to lookup my machin with 'host -t MX domain.hylix.com' command it was down that time.

I have configure mail server with private ip(192.168.100.xxx) not with real ip. shelll i have to configure with real ip?

about hylix.com this is my web site and it hosted. it a live website. ofcourse it should work.

thanx for help...

You have to have an MX dns entry for domain.hylix.com, if you want to recieve mail to there.
You do have MX entry for hylix.com, though.

Somebody always has a dns server for your domain (this time it is host-hq.com that does it).
To have an A (or in this case, MX) record for your hostname "domain.hylix.com", you have to have some access to the nameserver (or to people who setup that nameserver) of your domain. If your ip address changes frequently, updating it all the time might be a problem.
