Hi there!

Debian lenny
Ispconfig3

I follow this Falko howto:
http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-debian-lenny-ispconfig3

and all works fine. It's perfect!

But suddenly I have a email server problem today?

yesterday I can send and receive emails but today it's impossible.

I get this:

$ dig any-domain.com any +multiline

; <<>> DiG 9.5.0-P2 <<>> any-domain.com any +multiline
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:

name-services????
And I don't get any mx record...


What's the problem? Can you point me any information??

The syntax to get the MX record is:

dig MX any-domain.com

The MX record is from the dns server that is authoritive for your domain name and is not directly related to your mail server setup. You should contact the company that runs the dns server for your domain and tell them to add a correct MX record pointing to the hostname of your server.
