I am struggling with converting my unix mail server to Exchange server 5.5
on a Windows 2000 Advance Server machine. For convenience let us say my
domain is test.com .My unix server had been configured to receive
following both mail addresses to the same reciepient account.
Here server1 is the name of the machine.
When configuring Win2k server I gave same server1 name to new machine to
avoid any conflict.
Now with Exchange 5.5 any mail addressed to  reciepient@xxxxxxxx receive
However when sending  a mail addressing reciepient@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx  mail
is rejecting saying Host is unknown.
I guess problem is with DNS MX record entry. Below mentioned is the
relevant entries I have used.
@               MX 10 server1.test.com
server1         MX 15 server1.test.com
server1         A
@               A

Appreciate if anybody give me a clue or guideline to get through this..
Thanks in Advance,
