    So, I'm new to the whole vps hosting but i've got my domain going. The only problem I've got is the email. This is the first time I've set up a *nix mail system. I'm just wondering if someone could help me out a bit with a few questions i'm having.
    On outgoing mail, the domain reported is [email protected] I'd like to have that just be [email protected], how do i go about accomplishing this?
    Also, emails to addresses at aol.com seem to be bouncing with this error:

    The original message was received at Mon, 29 Oct 2007 10:42:52 -0400
    from host.modern-radio.com [127.0.0.1]

    ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
    <[email protected]>
    (reason: 550 REQUESTED ACTION NOT TAKEN: DNS FAILURE)

    ----- Transcript of session follows -----
    ... while talking to mailin-01.mx.aol.com.:
    >>> MAIL From:<[email protected]>
    <<< 550 REQUESTED ACTION NOT TAKEN: DNS FAILURE
    554 5.0.0 Service unavailable


    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I know my way around linux just fine, i'm just a little green when it comes to this mail server stuff.
