    Hello,

    Did you get the following error in a bounce message after sending an email?

    Sorry. Although I'm listed as a best-preference MX or A for that host,
    it isn't in my control/locals file, so I don't treat it as local. (#5.4.6)
    This error is usually generated when the MX record for a domain points to 127.0.0.1 (localhost)

    A possible cause is that you mistyped the email address of the person you were trying to reach.

    Another possible cause is misconfigured DNS for the domain that you are sending to.
