MX setup with Rage4

Hi all,

I recently (2 days ago) moved my domain over to Rage4DNS to have a play about with it.
I have a mail server on a VPS that i had around and i used IRedMail. However, when I use tools such as "intoDNS" to view my DNS set up i get "no records found" for MX even though they were set with Rage4. I have listed my config below - can anyone shine any light on it?

Hostname: mail.mydomain.com

A record for mail.mydomain.com = the IP of the mail server

MX record for mail.mydomain.com = IP of the mail server

I am happy to share my IP/Domain name with trusted users via PM however i dont really want to post it here.

Any help would be great!

Thanks,
Will

    did you check on a commandline? dig +MX DOMAIN; dig +A mail.DOMAIN

    Just tried that and got "invalid option +MX" and same +A
    Im on CentOS 6 and have Bind utils installed.

    Cheers.

    Is the email for 'mydomain.com' or 'mail.mydomain.com'?

    I assume for 'mydomain.com' so it should be

    A record for mail.mydomain.com

    MX record for mydomain.com -> mail.mydomain.com and priority (ie. 10)

    You probably have this setup wrong. You should normally have the following entries in DNS:

    mail.domain.com - type: A - IP address of your mail server.

    domain.com - type: A - IP address of your web server.

    domain.com - type: MX - mail.domain.com

    If I had to guess, you have the MX record on mail.domain.com instead of domain.com.

    MX records can't use ip. And you probably want to set the MX record for yourdomain.com, not for mail.yourdomain.com

    so do what petris said. If memory helps rage4 want you to use the correct syntax for fqdn with the trailing dot.

    @rzlosty - we provide support to all our users and as far as I know the issue is solved now

  • Thanks for the help everyone. The issue is solved. I had my MX as the IP of my server instead of mail.mydomain.com. duh!

    As this violates the RFC anyway Rage4 should probably display a warning.
