    Question Error while fetching mail for virtual mail domain account!

    Hello,
    I have created a virtual email domain, lnxsitenew.com, when i telnet it:
    telnet mail.lnxsitenew.com 53
    , it connects.

    Its DNS entries are:
    mail.lnxsitenew.com. IN A 192.168.0.102
    lnxsitenew.com. IN MX 10 mail.lnxsitenew.com.
    lnxsitenew.com. IN MX 15 lnxsitenew.com.
    , where 192.168.0.102 is my system's ip.

    When i send mail to its user, the mails come in its mailbox i.e.
    /var/spool/vmail/lnxsitenew.com/user
    Now, i have created an account for its user in Evolution, where i have the following settings:
    Receiving Email
    Host: mail.lnxsitenew.com
    Username: user@lnxsitenew.com
    Sending Mail
    I have selected "Sendmail".
    In /etc/mail/local-host-names, i have added site name and restarted the sendmail service.

    Now when i send receive mail i get the following message:

    Error while Fetching Mail.
    Could not connect to mail.lnxsitenew.com: Connection refused.
    What can be the problem?
