Setting up Email server


Hi, I just bought a VPS for hosting my personal email and to learn some.

I bought a VPS and installed Postfix with Squirrelmail, I am able to send mail but not receive :/
I have set the mail setting to be "mail.domain.com" and redirected the IP to my new IP (In cPanel), but it still keep sending it to my cPanel account and not my VPS. Why?

DNS setting are "mail.sae****.net -> TTL: 14400 -> CLASS: IN -> TYPE: CNAME -> Record: 176.31.8*.***"

Something I have done wrong?

I want to learn how to setup and I have some problems with the email there. So I basically want to control my own email server =)

DNS updates are not instant since its cached.

You can try sending an email from a host which hasn't sent you an email for a while

Also check mxtoolbox.com or intodns.com to see if your changes are applied successfully

when did you apply the change?

Most likely your problem is the dns cache I guess...
