When I run I get 2 errors:

    Connect to mail servers ERROR: I could not find any mailservers for

    MX Category ERROR: I couldn't find any MX records for If you want to receive E-mail on this domain, you should have MX record(s).

    Your Internal Domain controller doesn't need to find the MX record for your own domain.

    The problem is with your ISP, providing you didn't hide your real domain name in your post, doesn't have any MX records setup so external mails doesn't know where to route to.
