Thanks for everyone's quick responses:
My question concerned the new installation of DNS on a few SPARCS running NIS.
I was receiving 553 errors which looked suspiciously like MX Looping.
For Example: mail email@example.com
>>553 : host configuration error message
mail within my domain worked fine however.
Thanks to Pomeranz and others I realized that the sendmail binary needed to
be replaced with the sendmail.mx binary. This solved my problem a far as the
errors were concerned. However, mail was still not being deliverd externally.
This problem turned out to be problems with the SMTP Gateway and the main
Mailhost < A micro Vax II >. Following reboot of these 2 machines mail
automagically made it to external addresses.
Thanks Again, Everyone for helping me with my first DNS install !
