    Hi -

    For various reasons I've got an MX record that covers my primary domain ( with is pretty much all of my mail. I've also setup a separate MX record for a specific subdomain ( The domain is in my remotedomains file, as the mail is serviced by an external server, and the domain is listed in the localdomains file.

    When mail is sent to, exim still feels that it should be delivering to the MX for the base domain,, e.g. the external server.

    The DNS tools (host -t mx and host -t mx return the correct hostnames, so I think the record is correct... Am I missing something here?
