Do I need an MX record for email forwarding?

view story

http://serverfault.com – I have my domain askerov.net registered with mydomain.com so that all incoming email is forwarded to my Gmail account using the email forwarding feature of mydomain.com. Note that I don't have Google Apps for this account, just regular email. Things worked fine for a while except for the occasional bounce here and there, then a few days ago emails started bouncing all the time. Here's what the configuration looks like in mydomain.com: Nameservers: ns1.mydomain.com ns2.mydomain.com MX record: @ --> mx.askerov.net (priority 30) NS records: askerov.net --> ns1.yourhostin (HowTos)
