    Lightbulb Help me with mail server

    Hi all, first post but WHT has been very helpful for me when setting up my first dedicated box.

    I am having trouble with my mail server. I am running mailenable on Win 2k3 server. I can receive emails no problem but can't send out. I don't think there is a problem with the DNS: dnsreport,com/tools/ but it still seems other mail servers won't accept mail from me. I have configured RRAS basic firewall to open only the ports I need. What steps do other mail servers go through to check the sender of incoming mail?

    Site is www, (won't let me post urls yet ) and I am running the mail server on the same IP (will change this in future when I have it all working).

    Thanks for any help.

    What bounce back are you getting if any ? Or does the mail stay queued on the server ?

    Message is waiting at for delivery to

    Reason: Mail Server for could not be contacted at this time. MailEnable will keep trying to deliver this message and will notify you of any progress.

    However, I think I know the root of the problem now. I have submitted a ticket to servermatrix to update the PTR DNS record so that reverse DNS on my mail IP resolves to my mailserver. Hopefully that should do the trick.
