I have read some of your suggested articles. When I use telnet to check my connection, the result is
# telnet mydomain.selfip.com 25
Connected to mydomain.selfip.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 localhost.localdomain ESMTP Sendmail 8.12.5/8.12.5; Sun, 20 Apr 2008 13:46:17 +0800
221 2.0.0 localhost.localdomain closing connection
It seems to be OK for internal mail delivery but if I want to receive mail from yahoo mail, should the
response be "220 mydomain.selfip.com ........"?
In addition, I use dynamic IP and without any MX record. Should MX record be made in my case ?
Somebody said that for dynamic IP, no need to create MX record. Is that true?
Furthermore, both "mydomain.selfip.com" and "mail.mydomain.selfip.com" can be resolved to same dynamic IP.
Please let me know your opinion on this issue. Thanks!

sorry for delayed reply.
I used to send a mail from my linux server to gmail or yahoo ...[i suggest you try with gmail first]Is that one working (ie) sending a mail from your linux machine to gmail?
I never tried to send a mail from yahoo to my server.--so sadly got no idea about that one.
If i'm not wrong - you a domain with a proper MX record.
Which you can ping or dig from outside world.
