theres no point starting a new thread just because the old one was closed ... follow the advice in the thread that got locked.
Please pay someone with some technical knowledge physically near you to fix your issue.

I did ask him to start a new topic. We'll try and fix his MX records.

Do you have control over your own DNS records?

Ok All those google MX records? you should remove them unless you know of a reason why you need to keep them.

I only have added those records to enable google apps for my domain. because of this I have created several accounts like admin@abc.in, nishant@abc.in and I can check all these mails at
https://mail.google.com/a/abc.in

these google MX records are used for this. It would be kind of problem If I remove them.

still priorities are different for all these MX records

Right well you can't do both very easily with all those MX records added. You can add a new MX at #1 for your mailserver but there is no guarantee the sending server will adhere to your priority. It should but that doesn't mean it will.

I would make a decision now whether you want to use your own mail server or google apps. Running both on this domain is what's causing you your problems.

If it were me I would use 2 domains. one for google apps and one for my main mail and website.

ah ... sorry ... my bad

maybe just do a subdomain? ... i.e. johndoe@yourdomain.com and this forwards to johndoe@internal.yourdomain.com as well as keeping a copy at the original mail for google to collect?

Then you can have a different MX for internal than the google ones?

Bit long winded though ... probably best with 2 domains as doom suggests.
