Question Sending mails with eXtremail

Hi all

I have eXtremail running on my RedHat 8.0 machine.
Everything seems to work fine, but some mails I can't send because of this error I found in the logs:
'There is no answer from DNS'
'Error: reading from DNS'

Then I tried to send the same mail using hotmail and it worked.
I also checked the domainname using the command
'host domainToBeChecked' -> and an IP was returned.

Again: Some mails I can send without any problems but some not...
Does anybody has an idea how I can solve this problem?

what was the domainToBeChecked?
anyways, try...

...if it works then there maybe something wrong with extremail.
If it doesn't work, you may have to set dns servers in /etc/resolv.conf

There are several domains to which I want to sent mails to.
Some work, some not.
I tried host and it worked.
Also the dns servers are set in /etc/resolv.conf

Any other ideas?
