mixed hostname / email problem

    Trying to make FrontPage created forms work .

    When I try to send forms to my clients' new BellSouth address it bounces for this reason...
    SMTP error from remote mail server after MAIL FROM:<> SIZE=2249:
    host []: 553 does not exist

    When I try to send these forms to myself at my RoadRunner address they bounce for the same reason.
    SMTP error from remote mail server after MAIL FROM:<> SIZE=1853:
    host []: 553 5.1.8 <>... Domain of sender address does not exist

    Another example:

    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:
    SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT
    host [xxx.133.129.70]: 554 Client host rejected:
    cannot find your hostname, [xxx.202.65.106]. See http://

    What could cause this?

    My info:

    cpanel 10.x
    smtp port 25
    exim 4.5x


    service named restart

    DNS zone for hostname is already there also

    I think this might be causing the problem

    I have on server #1 (also host domain)
    It is my business domain as well, which I moved to a dedicated server of its own but had to keep the dns zone on server #2

    Now I got this going:

    server #1 holding dns info and hostname
    server #2 hostanme is
    server #3

    Each time I login to #2 and #3 I got the popup window "A entry for hostname not found". I ALWAYS add it and it pops up again later on. I ran /scripts/fixndc and its already fixed.

    How can I prevent this? Its basically saying hostname not found. Its not acknowledging when I add the A entry.

    Any ideas?
