	host -t mx ip-solutions.net

shows the following result

ip-solutions.net	MX	10 pony.ip-solutions.net
 !!! ip-solutions.net MX host pony.ip-solutions.net is not canonical

So I'd suggest that your mailer is doing the Right Thing and complaining 
about the lack of _correct_ MX records. Pony CNAMES to ip-solutions.net. 
Everything on the right hand side of an MX record should be an A-record.

I'm about to say 'read the manual' because I don't know how to fill in MX
records utterly properly myself, so: read the bat book. :) Or the RFCs.
