    Hello everyone, ask for information / help, I have a small home web / mail server with ISPConfig installed. I would like to manage the i of my domain with ISPConfig, only not having a static public ip to use a DDNS set on my domain as CNAME record. When I look for the site with the address it resolves it correctly, but the records set on ISPConfig are not resolved and I need email to work. Thanks to those who can give me a hand.

    My signature has link to e-mail setup tutorial. You may stumble on the port 25 part.
    Web server should work.

    Thanks, do I watch them, even with DDNS?

    I do not understand that question.

    Not having a public ip I am using a DDNS with NO-IP and I wanted to know if the tutorials you attached in the signature also work with DDNS

    They should if you apply them a bit. Does your Dynamic DNA allow setting MX record? Reverse DNS probably is not possible, so other e-mail servers may not accept e-mails from your server.
    Examine the ISPConfig manual and threads on this forum about setting up e-mail Routing, if you really want to user your home server as e-mail server.

    oh
    Ok thanks, yes No-Ip should give me the option to set MX records

    If your port 25 is closed, use a relay if you want to run a mail server.

    No on your router my dear, on your dynamic public ip which is provided by your ISP as it is normally closed in port 25.

    But as I said I am using a DDNS service since I don't have a static public ip

    I guess you don't understand what @Taleman and I were trying to say about mail server requirement for port 25 and ISP which provides that dynamic ip most probably won't have it opened either.

    I also think you should ask a human translator with server knowledge to explain this to you instead.
