Edit: My problem is solved (but I can't accept my own answer for another two days)
Basically I have my domain howcode.com bought at DomainMonster.com. I have set it all up to point to MediaTemple nameservers and everything works - mostly - fine. I have registered an email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
The setup is, I presume, working correctly. I can successfully send emails with the account. And I presume I can receive them - but the problem is, nobody can send them to me.
Emailing from a regular, non-Googlemail account appears to work fine but it never arrives in the inbox.
But when you email from a GoogleMail address, an error message is instantly returned saying this:
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:
Technical details of permanent failure: Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 relay not permitted (state 14).

Does this work? On 17 Apr 2010, at 12:32, Jack wrote:
I thought this may be something to do with my MX DNS settings. They are setup like so:
MX name: jkljklj.com TTL: 43200 Type: MX Data: 10 jkljklj.com.
The A-Record for mail.howcode.com is setup like this:
Name: jkljklj.com TTL: 43200 Type: A Data: 188.8.131.52
Is this what's going wrong with the issue?
Thanks very much
