Thanks for all your Help, unfortunitly it is still not working. I tried to get My DNS IP at and entered in the whois section, It gave me I tested that and both failed(I can ping to both). I noticed if I reboot resolv.conf was put back to my router? So I entered all the IP's in SAM under DNS(BIND)and restarted my local DNS server. Still no luck. Is my Loacal DNS server configured Correctly? Should I be Running a local DNS? The final Netscape Error says something about setting SOCKS_NS var. I did try It and failed. Is there something wrong with my startup script?

testmxlookup - Look up mail relays for a domain SYNOPSIS
testmxlookup [@ip-address] [--dnssec] [--udpsize n] {domain} DESCRIPTION
testmxlookup lists the names and IP addresses of mail relays that receive mail for the domain. This is useful in diagnosing mail delivery problems. testmxlookup sends a DNS MX query for the specified domain, followed by A/AAAA queries, if needed. testmxlookup lists the hostname and the IP address of every mail relay, and its MX priority. DIAGNOSTICS The error message "Hard error" indicates that the domain does not exist, or does not have any mail relays. The error message "Soft error" indicates a temporary error condition (usually a network failure of some sorts, or the local DNS server is down). OPTIONS @ip-address Specify the DNS server's IP address, where to send the DNS query to, overriding the default DNS server addresses read from /etc/resolv.conf. "ip-address" must be a literal, numeric, IP address. --dnssec Enable the DNSSEC extension. If the DNS server has DNSSEC enabled, and the specified domain's DNS records are signed, the list of IP addresses is suffixed by "(DNSSEC)", indicating a signed response. This is a diagnostic option. Older DNS servers may respond with an error, to a DNSSEC query. --udpsize n Specify that n is the largest UDP packet size that the DNS server may send. This option is only valid together with "--dnssec". If "--dnssec" always returns an error, try "--udpsize 512" (the default setting is 1280 bytes, which is adequate for Ethernet, but other kinds of networks may impose lower limits). SEE ALSO
