    This problem (and it's solutions) has been covered many time in the forums and in the Split DNS article - you appear to have no valid DNS A or MX records for your domain. You are, however, looking-up the wrong domain, you should use the correct domain name as shown below:

    Code:
    dig mouthshut.com mx
    I'd suggest you start by reading the Split DNS article, it has full details on how to set-up your DNS server with the correct records and a correct hosts file with steps on how to check them.
    Regards
