MX Records? Where are they?

Thank you very much 'trickykid' I have been hunting for questions about MX files all night. And while I feel no closer to my overall goal, I appreciate you putting jack-a**'s like 'PHP' here in there place. Those of us who are aspiring to learn are sick and tired of these guys, and can't wait for the day, they fade away into oblivion.

In addition, if anyone has any answers as to why I cannot seem to work with the MX records please, I could sure use some help.

I run the 'nslookup -querytype=mx' but cannot seem to find anything.

Also, in the RH 9.0 package, /etc/ I cannot seem to find DMdomainname.cxm. I need to edit this to point to my server. I have already worked with the Cwlocalhost lline, but the other eludes me.

Thank you all in advance for any help you can provide.
