    The A record is used when no MX record is found (that's how mail works).
    just because _you_ _now_ see an MX record doesn't mean that postfix
    could find one at the time of the transaction.

    you'll have to do some debugging to see if you have a DNS problem.

    - if you are not running a local DNS server, consider running one
    - if your DNS queries are forwarded to your SP, consider disabling this
    - if your postfix has chrooted services, consider disabling chroot.
    - if your system resolver has bugs, try from another system

    it doesn't matter how it may look like to you. if you want help, show
    the real domain.
