I'm having an intermittent problem sending mail out from the zimbra box. When I send an email to a domain, say, firstname.lastname@example.org (my work account), I get a bounce back:

domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1) (in reply to RCPT TO

Why is it looking up the A records for the domains rather than the MX?
