named KC from domain "" which is outside of our physical
configurations sends me an e-mail, the mail bounces back with this message:

Are you using Sendmail or MMDF?  If Sendmail...check out the
sendmail home page, and FAQ.  There are specific fixes for
the problem you are seeing:

1. Internet Faststart Virtual Domains & DNS

Has anyone managed to get the Email for Virtual Domains working under
Faststart 5.02. The Setup of the Virtual domains works well, the Web and
FTP sites are available, but if I add mail users to the Virtual domain
and try to send them mail I get a "553 Mail loops back to myself error"

The MX record in the DNS for is  IN      MX      0

The Virtual Domains are on a Faststart Server, and mail set to Virtual
Domain users bounces to root and back to the sender. I'm assuming this
is a DNS issue, but there may be an issue with Faststart.

Any advice is appreciated.
