Hello I am getting the following message when I try to send an email to the following address . I searched all the web but the best solution that they provide is either updating plesk or either editing smtproutes file in /var/qmail/control/ but this is not something that actually helps ..

I paste the message below any help appreciated:

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at dtekhost01.gr.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

Sorry, I couldn't find a mail exchanger or IP address. (#5.4.4)

smtproutes has nothing to do with your problem. this is a DNS resolution problem. does your server dns function conrrectly ? What is the result if you try to do an ANY query or an MX query for these domains from your mail server, using something like dig, or nslookup? –  thanosk Apr 19 '13 at 14:04
