Oh. My. Gosh. Wow. You know, the first question I ask when someone calls to
say something isn't working, is to ask them if the power is on. Never
thought to do that myself.

Anyway, we did (or so we thought) set the mx record correctly. But, per your
suggestion, I checked the mail headers. Sure enough, the linux box wasn't
touching them. So, we double checked the records. The settings we changed
must not have stuck. So, we re-changed the settings, and now everything
works like a charm.
