The error I'm getting is that the remote computer cannot
find the host
I have the domain name in P.O. "Local Mail Domains" both as and
(jillian being my mail server)
Here is a copy of what my dns server has for this virtual

Name Type
Data NS
danielle.tgic (danielle is my dns server) SOA
danielle.tgic, administrator.tgic
capeannweddings MX
danielle A (IP assigned to VH)
jillian A (IP for mail server)
mail CNAME

Any ideas on what I'm missing or doing wrong?
