Name Server Error For .... (postfix)


Hi
I have set relayhost in main.cf to mail.gmx.net and I am getting a Name Server Error for mail.gmx.net error everytime I try and send an email. Apart from this Postfix runs fine. I can ping and host the server and my internet connection is fine. I have tried changing the chroot flags in master.cf to n and it still doesn't work. I am not running a dns server and I'm using dhcp to get my ip address.
I would be very gratefull for any assistance, this is driving me mad.
Thanks
Dave

Well if postfix is running chrooted you will need to take a look at /var/spool/postfix/etc/resolv.conf

Woo - hoo! Solved it, something kept on overwriting my resolve.conf (I guess something to do with my dhcp)
