    Hi,

    When I send an email from and external source ie my home account to the domain name I get the following error.

    The original message was received at Fri, 11 Mar 2005 09:49:48 +1100
    from localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1]

    ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
    <sales@gchost.com>

    ----- Transcript of session follows -----
    550 5.1.2 <sales@gchost.com>... Host unknown (Name server: gchost.com: no data known)

    I am not sure if this is due to a dns error, as I am getting a non authoratitive response from my secondary name server, or if the error has something to do with the configuration.

    I did have this domain setup as parked on one of the other domains upuntil a few days ago.

    would this have anything to do with the problem

    any help would be great.

    regards

    Kyle

    it was a dns authoritative issue.

    If you recently made changes, then it may take a bit of propagtion time.

    When you ping ghost.com does it resolve to the correct IP?

    You could edit the hosts file on your pc if propagation is the issue, as a temporary measure.
