Unhappy sending mail from my new domain name

Hay folks,

I have a problem that has just started but i dont why as it worked before??

This is the problem:

I set up my new domain name on the dsvr servers but this is forwarded to another of our servers.

The mail is set up on the dsvr server and is forwarded to my user account on dsvr.

When i log into my user account with my email i get this error: on Thu, 11 Dec 2003 18:19:26 -0000
A configuration error in the e-mail system caused the message to bounce between two servers or to be forwarded between two recipients. Contact your administrator.
< #5.3.5 SMTP; 553 5.3.5 system config error>

anyone got any ideas??

I didnt think it would be this difficult to setup a domain name

Check the log files for an error message that is being generated and sent by the 2nd server but is bounced back by the 1st one...
