Cannot receive email from Web-based Email (Gmail,, etc.)

My hosted email cannot receive any email sent from web-based clients, such as Gmail or Outlook.  My email is hosted under SSL with the server information provided by GoDaddy.  Outgoing email is not a problem.  Also sending/receiving within the same domain is not a problem.


The emails sent from Gmail and are bounced back with the following error message: (Domain name is crossed out for privacy purposes)


Bounced back to Gmail:

Looks like there is a misconfiguration of your MX records @Hidz? Have you double checked your settings? Is there a error that appears in your Email Control Center?
