    Hi again,

    I've setup the Perfect Suse 10.2 again. Finally got most everything working. However, I am unable to receive mail on any of my domains. From my readings here are some of the logs that may help in troubleshooting.

    View attachment mail.err.txt

    I can send email out or to/from any local domains, but am not receiving and I'm not seeing any obvious errors.

    EDIT: I've also verified that I can access port 25 from and outside carrier.

    Done. Doesn't seem to have helped with inbound though.

    I am seeing some different errors in the log that I hadn't seen before.

    Here is the most recent. You will notice a 450 error.

    I've taken care of everything except the MX records. They appear to be set correctly.

    A record
    mail A

    mail MX 10

    It looks better now, but you will need to get that MX error fixed, or you will not receive mail..

    Mail send to you needs to find it's way!

    I still do not see the MX record!

    Maybe give mail MX 10 @, with and an A recod like @ A your.server.ip a test...

    Using this page that edge posted (thank you very much), I have been able to work out many of the troubles. With all the DNS records appearing to be set correctly now.

    If you notice I am still having a problem in the "MAIL" section. Any help that you can provide in this area would be greatly appreciated. Oh, specifically the host name section. I'll be adding SPF after I get the rest of this mess worked out.

    Also, I keep reading in most cases where people use the "IN" statement in their zone files and zone file generators typically put it in. Is there any reason this statement is really necessary?

    I also have other domains I've created with ISPConfig. The results are much shorter and more troublesome for them.

    Alright, so I added mail as a host name in the hosts file and fixed the host name problem. This begs the question, what should I put in my hosts file?

    Should I include host information for every domain if I want each of them to show as whatever.dom or mail.whatever.dom? In other words, if someone is emailing to or from, I don't want anyone to be able to see that the mail server is actually on

    You will have to put only these domains in the hosts file that are not reachable through normal DNS. Also the hosts file works only locally for you, if you want someone to send mails to your domains, thei must be registered and configured properly in DNS.

    Hopefully my final question. I seem to have pretty much everything solid.

    When someone access for UebiMiau Webmail the location seems to redirect to the Is there any way to correct this so that when they go to it stays there?

    Correct the ServerName in /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and restart ISPConfig.
