Question Mail Domain problem


I set up a home mail server, simpley I want to recivive incoming mails and send outgoing, but I reached a snag, I can send the emails but cant recivie from major emails hosts such as (hotmail,gmail etc)

this is the transcript i am getting back from gmail,

Code:
----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
<wolf@dogcub.be>
   (reason: 550 Host unknown)

  ----- Transcript of session follows -----
550 5.1.2 <wolf@dogcub.be>... Host unknown (Name server: nicewolf.info: host not found)

Final-Recipient: RFC822; wolf@nicewolf.info
Action: failed
Status: 5.1.2
Remote-MTA: DNS; nicewolf.info
Diagnostic-Code: SMTP; 550 Host unknown
Last-Attempt-Date: Wed, 9 Aug 2006 00:24:41 +0100
I located the problem, for somthing reason, Gmail then trys to send it to wolf@nicewolf.info which was my old domain name I registerd with it when I installed slackware, but now it should be *@dogcub.be which its all setup for (Ip etc.) but some reason it still thinks its nicewolf.info, I tryed just about everything, I beeen through netconfig again, Changed Hostname, Made my own dns named file, and just out a luck can anybody show me or direct me whats wrong? I am currently using slackware 10.1

Thanks - Regard Dave

Accorind to dns report you don't have any MX records in your dns. You should contact everydns.net (which is your domain's authoritative dns) to fix it.

Thanks for the reply, I added MX Servers and tested it with that test but gmail is still breaking with it,

same error: Remote-MTA: DNS; nicewolf.info

Edit: Thanks for the help, I indeed got it working by adding a virtualtable so on how it was doing it was the fact my server was then forwarding it to nicewolf.info and then sending the reply that it cant be found to the host
