Have you set up your mx in your DNS ? Where-ever your main DNS records are for your domain name, you have to have an mx record as well.

Do you have your own DNS server or are you using someone elses ?

Examples here:

Well your DNS server is not visible to the outside world then.

[user@localhost ~]$ dig irma.ac.in

[user@localhost ~]$ nslookup irma.ac.in

It's not dns, your mailserver rejected an unknown user.
