I am assuming you have this situation:

MAIN domain name:  users have email addresses

CHILD domain name:  users have email addresses

Have you set up a DNS MX record for the child domain?  It is not
sufficient to set up a MX record for the main domain name.  You also need
a MX record for each sub-domain that will be receiving email
