    Default MX Record not found

    DNS ERROR resolving MX for mail.dijital.us
    It is suggested that the domain name have an MX record configured in DNS
    Re-Enter domain name? [Yes]
    Create Domain: [mail.dijital.us] webmail.dijital.us

    Now I should note that I am using my previous DNS server on 172.16.1.250 (a friend of mine set that up), so now I want to set this all up myself, any suggestions guys?

    Search the forums for 'DNS in a nutshell', that thread has details of the set-up required for a local DNS server.

    I'm pretty sure im getting closer attached is the a screenshot of the error im getting any help would be appreciated. But I think that it has to do with DNS on my end. You'll notice that its sitting in my mail server, but does not know how to properly route it.
    Reason: host or domain name not found. name service error for name=mail.dijital.us type-a: host not found, try again.

    Expand domains on that page-Do you have dijital.us listed as a domain? or just mail.digital.us?

    Let's see your /etc/hosts file.

    Though you could be setting this up internally...currently from the outside I get no answer if I do a:
    dig mx mail.digital.us
    or
    dig mx digital.us
    or
    dig mx webmail.digital.us

    Post your responses from running the above commands on that machine & that of another 'inside' if you could.

    I would like this to be able to mail internally along with worldwide, so my network will not be just local, but global.
