    (i will use for my IP and mydomain.com for my domain)

    the problem:
    My server sends and receives mail from my IP address fine, and I can send from mydomain.com, but not receive at mydomain.com

    for instance,
    [email protected] to [email protected] works
    [email protected] to [email protected] works
    [email protected] to [email protected] works
    [email protected] to [email protected] fails

    The domain settings in Mercury Core Module Configuration, under Local domains tab are:

    local host or server internet name
    000 000
    mydomain mydomain
    mydomain mydomain.com
    mydomain mail.mydomain.com

    my MX record is set up with freedns.afraid.org as:

    mail.mydomain.com MX preference = 0, mail exchanger = mail.mail.mydomain.com

    mail.mail.mydomain.com points to
