My email server sends mails but does not receive

My email server sends mail but does not receive

I can send mail using a mail server I have at home, I have a domain name I got at, but when I send mails to it they wonít get delivered.

Is it because I donít have the MX record?

If you didn't setup an MX record, that's most likely the problem. What is error that is returned when sending? Other details about your setup always helps too.
