Cant get emails


Hi all. I've installs qmail on my home server and i cant seem to get any emails. When i try to send one from my yahoo account i get a delivery error. I've followed the instruction word for word on this site and everything seems to be working. The server is running but i cant get emails? Why? Can someone help me with this. Thanx in advance! Oh btw the port 25 is open on my router and nothing is blocking communications.

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at yahoo.com.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

Looks like the problem is your MX entry in DNS is not pointing at your home email server....

so the email went to someone else's mail server and was rejected. (your registrar most likely)

secureserver.net appears to be wild west domains. Is that who you registered your domain name through ?
