Hi All,

I hope someone could take a moment and look at my dns. I am unable to email
to or any of there domains. When I called and finally got a
hold of someone in there NOC after 10 days. They told me the reason they are
rejecting my mail is because I have invalid MX or A records. Here is a snip
of my DNS records if someone sees what the problem is please tell me because
I don't have a problem emailing anyone else. I know I have two a records for but I don't think that should break my MX records. I also
noticed when I ran tcpdump when trouble shooting that I would get a (admin
prohibited filter) message after I sent a reply message to there DNS server
for the MX request message not sure if this is related but it seemed
