can you explain us:
1. What are the two mail servers ? are they supposed to work as load-balancing ones or are they for different domains ?

Are you able to resolve the mx for the induvidual domains in the systems ?

Eg:-

In the system which is serving www.aks.com
run
$ dig mx krish.com

this must give the ip address of the aks.com mail server.

and viceversa.

If this is not happening then i suspect you are using local DNS server whcih is not able to resolve the mx for the
interdomains but the external DNS are working fine !

Thank you for kind reply.

Please tell me how to configure mx in both mailservers.Unless mx configuration,$ dig mx krish.com won't work.

Thanks and regards
