I'm unsure, if this is a random or quality of service problem. If so it 
should be possible to get at least some messages through to your mail 
address, but none of 10 successive tries to send messages to you, have 
been accepted.

I know this is not a prove, but it looks more like a general problem ... 
most likely, the mail relay is expecting to have the MX lookup return an 
IP address, not a name.
