"No such user here" - I read that and hear a country song with a steel guitar and a sad southern drawl.
I just switched my hosting provider, but my domain is registered at a different provider. I forgot to update my MX records so that email to @osmyn.com would get routed to the mail servers at the registrar for my domain.
I always have to muddle my way through this process, so here's what I did:

To Check Your MX Records in the Email Control Center
- Log in to your Account Manager.
- From the Products tab, select Email.
- Next to the account you want to change, click Launch. The Email Control Center displays.
- Go to the Domains tab.
- Select the email account you want to verify MX records for, and then click Server Addresses.
I took the suggested correct settings:
And logged into discountASP.Net's server and updated my MX records and A Records there (to get the IP address of the A Records, I used c:\ping domain.name):
The update isn't instantaneous; it will take a few hours to propagate.
