Have you then tried to ping the returned mx records?

NSLOOKUP returns say mail.mydomain.com

so everything looks ok

but does ping mail.mydomain.com 

first resolve to an ip address 

and secondly get a response?

Just a thought

  Hello All,

      We have Exchange 5.5 SP4 on Windows NT 4.0 with SP 6a. When I check 
Internet Mail Service Queue, I see that some of messages remain and when I 
check the details, it says "host unreachable" althoug our DNS works properly. I 
checked it with nslookup on mail server ant it returns the mx records of these 
"unreachable" domains.

  Any idea?
