    Here is the plesk zone for this domain

    n-e-s.net.	NS	ns.n-e-s.net.	
    n-e-s.net.	A	
    mssql.n-e-s.net.	A	
    webmail.n-e-s.net.	A	
    ns.n-e-s.net.	A	
    mail.n-e-s.net.	A	
    ftp.n-e-s.net.	CNAME	n-e-s.net.	
    [url]www.n-e-s.net.	CNAME	n-e-s.net.	[/url]
    n-e-s.net.	MX (0)	inbound.n-e-s.net.netsolmail.net.	
    n-e-s.net.	MX (5)	outbound.n-e-s.net.netsolmail.net. / 24	PTR	n-e-s.net.

    The problem is this:

    Local domains on this box are unable to send mail to this domain.

    A bounce occurs with the following information:

    Hi. This is the qmail-send program at veglargh.hyperactivehosting.com. I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses. This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
    This address no longer accepts mail.
    --- Below this line is a copy of the message.

    I am assuming this is due to the redirect for the MX records not working and our server trying to deliver a local email to a local box which of course does not exist.

    What do you think is wrong?

    If you are using a mail server external to Plesk, simply click the "disable" button within the mail area for the domain name.
