    fixed

    it means your server cant get the information for that mail server.
    I had my isp's dns server listed.
    go to shell
    edit your resolv.conf
    put a # in front of any other servers you have listed in there
    and put
    nameserver 127.0.0.1

    I restarted my server after doing this but I dont think you have to restart any thing.

    Now my server can get the info needed to send the mail.

    thanks
