granitecanyon automatically run a checker called nslint against
submitted zone files. it will refuse your zone if you reference a host
not in your zone *unless* you put a marker in to tell their nslint
that it's ok.. like this:
@ IN MX 10 mymx.otherzone.com ; EXTREF
(or replace @ with the zone name if your origin isn't the same as the
same, but it should be)
the ; EXTREF bit is the directive to nslint.. also, you need to have
an RP record setup and the corresponding TXT entry:
@ IN RP myemail.isp.net me
me TXT "joe bloggs, ACME corp., __contact details__"
you can have multiple RP's if you have multiple email addresses that
you want to be contacted by, just point them to the me TXT RR.
All this stuff is in the docs/FAQ on soa.granitecanyon.com, so have a
good read of it. :)
