------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is this a possible DNS error or have I done something else wrong, please help.
this is for all my domains

You must create an A record for server1.webpapagedirect.co.za.

Grizzly 21st February 2006 21:01

A record has been set at DNS
 
Does this also have to be done at my registrar

Grizzly 21st February 2006 21:03

A
Code:

dig webpapagedirect.co.za
shows that ns0.coza.net.za is the authoritative nameserver for your domain. That's where you must create the DNS records.

More problems
 
Have informed my the nameserver for webpagedirect.co.za still waiting for them to get back to me.

No for domain ehs.org.za I get the following error:

Put ehs.org.za at the end of /etc/postfix/local-host-names (where it says that you can make changes there) and restart Postfix.

Grizzly 22nd February 2006 23:34

Now I'mstill not receiving on ehs.org.za and when sending from external no longer getting an error message. nothing comes back

on the domain zululand-adventures.com keeps asking for username and password, but when I change my incoming server from pop3.zululand-adventures.com to pop3.webpagedirect.co.za and keep username for zululand adventures domain I can log into the server ,but don't receive any mail.

Which POP3 server do you use? Please post the output of
Code:

netstat -tap
Is Maildir enabled or disabled under Management -> Server -> Settings -> Email (I guess you have installed ISPConfig)?

That's strange because all 3 FQDNs (zululand-adventures.com, pop3.zululand-adventures.com and pop3.webpagedirect.co.za) point to the same IP address. Do you see anything in the mail log about this?
