Sounds like a MX DNS problem.

Test your domain at , and report back any errors / fails.
(enter your domain in the DNS report box)

Edge thank you for quick reply;
I chcked and I that gat this message;
ERROR: The parent servers say that the domain does not have any NS records (although they may have some other information on that zone). I can not do a DNS report on a hostname (such as or a domain name that does not have its own zone.]

How can I fix this or do you know can I do thhat with kind of free domain?
Thanks again.

No MX, no mail.. The MX record of a DNS is telling other servers where the mail should go to..

You will need to creat a MX record in (your?) DNS server that is pointing to your mailserver.

If you run your own DNS server, all you will need to do is within ISPconfig go to DNS manager > the-domain > Records, and click on New under MX.
Enter in Host: @ and in Mailserver the 1st domain of your server**

** The one you set in Management > Server > Settings (the Domain)

Aftert this do the dnsreport test again, and see if it's any better.

I tryed all what you say but still I am taking same messages.

I reboot to computer. But nothing changed.

If you are using, than you are not using your own dns!
You will need to set the MX record at I think

Hi Again;
I talked with and they support mx recort free I seted neccessery install. Now I am accesing web site which before you gave me DNS report giving still problem but beside of that mail test giving exact report means that working.

Do I have wait for dns record for some times like 12, 24, 48 hours or it must be effect immediet? Because still I can't receive email from out.

Thanks again.
