Whois is asking the domain registration. A SMTP server that checks
for the validity, asks a DNS though, which is a totally different
instance.

So, if you can verify your presence in whois, it'll only tell you
that you're still owning it. But you also need to get your servers
known to the DNS service, which requires you to set up the proper
Name Servers. Are you sure you've done this?
