I have a new server which has its own nameservers up and running. The nameservers are running fine and I know this because I have two domains on this server which are registered to point to the nameservers that I have set up and they are working fine as well.
However, I can not seem to be able to access the mail server for any of the domains through outlook or other email programs.
I have the DNS set up for the mail server for each domain as follows:
domain.com A <ip address>
mail.domain.com CNAME domain.com
domain.com MX10 mail.domain.com
This was set up using the PLESK server admin control panel.
the 'webmail' feature for the domain works fine when accessed via webmail.domain.com.
It's just that outlook times out when trying to connect to the mail.domain.com mail server.
That's funny. Sometimes I forget to ask. "Does this problem still occur when the firewall is disabled?"
