Default Inbound email issue

Hi

I have followed the perfect server guide from http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-centos-5.2-p3

i installed everything without a hitch, the only thing that im having issues with is inbounde email, when i email from my home email address to my domain it doesn't deliver, havent seen a bounce back either.

when i email from my CentOS VPS to my home email account it arrives in seconds, i have squirrelMail installed but its not seeing anything inbound.

also checked the mail spooler files and there is no sign of the email, i do have an mx of mail.myserver.net and it pings/traces.

any ideas ?

Thanks

What do you mean with home email address? Is the mail server hosted on a dynamic IP at your home? Then you should check if it is blacklisted as most dynamic IPs are blacklisted: http://www.mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx

the VPS is on a server hosted in a DC, my home email as in my private email.

when i emailed from my private email address to my hosted VPS email address it doesnt arrive but it does work the other way around.

Did you check that the MX record points to the correct server? You can check that as follows:
Code:
dig mx yourdomain.com
