Or at least I think they can't 
Toomas, phaza7 is not a user on in the smtp but tweaxor is 
root never recieved any mail.   I think its a DNS problem cause I haven't configured a MX record in BIND 8.3.2 or a A record either.  guess that would help but having trouble following the handbook on how to setup a master name server for my lan will that help
In RFC 2181 it's says that MX should never point to CNAME why??
How can I tell in the master name server is running properly thanks for your time and consideration ;-)

OK, as I mentioned in my previous message I cc-d it to
phaza7 at hijra.homeunix.com.

My mail server recorded the following in its log as it
tried to send mail to this address

Jul 9 16:59:54 lv sendmail[10974]: h69Dxml10970: to=
 , delay=00:00:06, xdelay=00:00:02, mailer=esmtp, pri=93327, relay=hijra.homeunix.com. [], dsn=5.1.1, stat=User unknown

Note that I was able to successfully connect to hijra.homeunix.com. [],
but it responded that user phaza7 is unknown. This leaves two possibilities:

* is not really your server, which means that there is some confusion
with dyndns.org nameserver.
* you haven't defined local user phaza7 in your server.

Mail to root at hijra.homeunix.com was successfully delivered:

Jul 9 16:59:55 lv sendmail[10974]: h69Dxml10970: to=, delay=00:00:07, xdelay=00:00:03, mailer=esmtp, pri=93327, relay=hijra.homeunix.com. [], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (Ok: queued as E19E9B55)
