Email server
Hi there!

Debian lenny

I follow this Falko howto:

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 +multiline

; <<>> DiG 9.5.0-P2 <<>> any +multiline
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 42211
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 2, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0


;; ANSWER SECTION: 1786 IN A X.X.X.X 1786 IN SOA (

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

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.
