either your DNS records are/were hosed, or your MTA is mis-config'd.
Try http://www.dnsstuff.com to scope out your DNS records, and remember that
changes take some time to propogate.
Is your MTA sendmail, exim, or what? Are you set up to use a smart host to
relay outgoing mail, or are you sending from your host? Are you receiving on
your host, or POP'ing/IMAP'ing another host?
