Name Server - Self Email


OK I have recently delved into the realms of the dedicated server and so far have succesfully set up my box to act as a name server and host all my www domains, email and ftp (believe it or not)

The problem is, I need to have the actual nameserver domain as a mailbox enabled domain, for example I have set up in my domain registrars settings ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com and they both point to 2 diff ip addresses on my dedicated box

now by pointing all my domains at that, I can use that to manage the dns entries of any other sites etc which works fine

however I have entered the same dns as I would for any other domain for mydomain.com with my registrar including mx but the mail never seems to reach the server

any ideas ?!?!

did you wait for DNS propagation? Do you use .com/.net domain name ?

it is a .biz domain and yes as far as I am aware I have waited appropriate time

I have set the mx to point to the ip with a trailing . of my mail server is that correct ?!

Will I need some form of glue record !? as all my others are working fine, so not sure why this does not

no glue... have you defined your MX record like this:


domain.biz. IN MX 0 mx.domain.biz.
mx.domain.biz. IN A 10.10.10.10

ps. send me PM so that I can check it via host cmd

incorrect!
you need to define a hostname as in my example, and then IN A record for the hostname with IP

e.g.

webdynamix.biz. IN MX 0 mx.webdynamix.biz.
mx.webdynamix.biz. IN A 216.32.77.108

and there you go.

Ok I have updated the records as of your suggestion, feeling that I have a duplicate with my mail and mx A record now though

But I have attached my settings as I can change them

I havent tested those settings yet, as they have put the 2nd hdd back in my server, but appear to have forgotten to turn it back on !!!!

Looks all good! Except, that the port doesnt open (hint: packet filter?)

webdynamix.biz mail is handled by 10 mx.webdynamix.biz.

telnet mx.webdynamix.biz 25
Trying 216.32.77.108...

I don't know that for sure, DNS server is working. Perhaps they forget to bind that IP to your ethernet card ?
