Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So I setup JAMES successfully, and it works fine, if I send myself an email from gmail say, a@gmail.com sends to b@45.75.477.34 <- my ip. But when I do it for my domain name, it doesn't work, say b@abc.com. So I re-pointed all the mx(s) to my domain in godaddy. all the stmp, pop, inap goes to my domain now, yet, when I try to send it, gmail still fails. Can someone please help?

If you JUST changed the DNS settings, you'll need to give them time to propogate.

Use a few tools like this one to see what DNS records have been propogated, and to make sure the records reflect what you expect them to be.
