I have a domain where I have setup the MX records according to Googles instructions to point to Google Apps:

Priority Points to
1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
10 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
10 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.

This works fine for all emails coming from "outside"

But all emails being sent from a mailserver located at the ip-address being pointed to be the domains A-records, does not come through. The webserver works fine, but I am in doubt about whether my a-records might be incorrectly set up, and this might explain the issue:

Host IPTTL
localhost.mydomain.com127.0.0.143200
mydomain.com195.63.29.85 (fictive)43200
mydomain.com195.63.29.85 (fictive)43200

If this is correct, what could possibly cause this behaviour?

do you have an SPF record?

My registrar has not yet implemented an SPF-record, and refers to the TXT record to do so. The TXT record currently only holds a validation code used to validate owership to Google. Nothing else.

I guess I could just remove the Google code now, but would that make any difference?
