Old DNS records

I'm having an odd issue, which I believe is DNS-related.

I used to have two of my domains hosted on a DSL connection of one of my friends. Anyway, he's being shipped off to Iraq and his server has been unstable as of late. So, I moved my hosting to, and updated the DNS servers listed with my registrar. However, it seems like some servers, including the email reply notifications from, are not seeing the new server. I updated the registrar about 3+ days ago.

By the way, my two domains are and and both should resolve to

Anyone have any thoughts or experience with this? I'm guessing that the old server still having a different DNS record is somehow causing problems, though nobody should be going to it for records, I thought.

I assume your running named on your system? I would take a look at your dns config includes - especially if you're only having trouble with email.

Perhaps you forgot to include the MX 10 designation for your mail server?

also do a ps -C named and make sure it is listed as a running process

The server with the new IP addresses is not mine, as I mentioned above. It's just a virtual server. From both home and here (school/work) it resolves fine, but I have not gotten any emails since the changeover. I'm trying to get the issue resolved by having the old records deleted from the server I no longer use, but getting in touch with the admin of that box is not easy.
