    I can't seem to receive mail on my Mac mini serve running Snow Leopard Server.

    The domain is 4rsmokehouse.com

    Thanks!

    Do you have an MX record setup with whoever is hosing your domain name (in other words, perhaps with who you registered it through)?

    Never mind, figured it out. Thanks guys anyway. Turns out I just needed to wait a while longer for everything to propagate.

    In case you haven't figured out the delay, or for other people looking for help with the same problem -- Snow Leopard server uses greylisting as part of its spam filtering. Greylisting causes slow delivery with many email providers, such as gmail and MobileMe among others. For me, mail would show up almost exactly one hour after it was sent from an outside account, but would show up instantly from another internal account.
