Apologies, I should have looked up more things about mail exchangers.
But anyways I know what the problem is now. I ssh into this server as
it is at my friend's house. I don't know what his isp is (i should
have been clear about this, as I know most people on here haven't read
my previous posts). The real problem is that his router is not set up
to forward port 25. I'll let you know when that is resolved (as he is
currently away and is not able to remote desktop into his computer for
some reason) Thanks.
