I figured out the problem with the hostname being used vs the name I 
specified.  I am quite embarrassed to admit it but it should be a lesson 
that everyone should learn from.   The name I was using was being used 
before as a web host.  http://lists.domain.com/

I changed it and turned it into a mail host.  I forgot to change it from 
a CNAME to an A record.  This is why they tell you not to point CNAMEs 
and MX records.  :)

Thank you to all for trying.
