    just wondering,

    Should I have used sytes.net as the domain in the config files instead of kevinsproject.sytes.net, as its a subdomain?

    Thanks.

    That depends, is sytes.net your actual domain name?

    Then the answer would be no, you use the subdomain unless you want to purchase a real domain name. There isn't anything specifically wrong with using a sub-domain to receive mail.

    nameserver 127.0.0.1
    domain kevinsproject.sytes.net
    search kevinsproject.sytes.net

    What errors do you see when you say you can't send mail?

    Take a look at this excellent write-up from Lhammonds on the configuration of DNS on Ubuntu and compare it with your configuration. The easiest thing to do for configuring DNS is to a) use a better DNS server (such as PowerDNS &MySQL backend) or b) use webmin to manage and configure DNS.
