My website has a cart function that emails customers out of house and the sales staff in house when an order is placed.
A little while ago our DNS server decided to committ suicide and a new one has been installed.
I am brand new to server administration. They fail to teach that subject in web programming and graphic school.
So, needless to say, this has been utterly frustrating to the 'nth' degree.

So...here is the issue.
Amongst many other headaches fixed, this one I can not figure out. My site no longer mails to the sales staff that are here on the private network. I have watched the mail logs on Mdeamon and the mails don't even seem to be getting past the Domain Controller. The website will mail outside accounts just fine, but the website (php mail( ) ) will not mail inside the network.
I have searched and searched but cannot find what to change to allow the website to mail my sales staff.

Thanks in advance to anyone who responds. My fellow computer geekers, I need your help.

Finally after many months, this problem has been solved. Why do we work in this field? Because we are gluttons for punishment.

The problem all along was on the DNS server. After the crash, the MX record was never remade.

After inserting the MX record into the DNS, it worked perfectly.

I was happy and angry at the same time.

At least its over.
