It appears that the problem is in DNS
This is my actual domain merlin4x.com
It works for everything ftp, mail, and subdmains but not for smtp.merlin4x.com.
I get an error that the server is not existent
So I have add smtp to may DNS list at my server under "Cname"
I do not know if it is correct place but it is where I list ftp, mail, www and subdmains
I understand that it will take some time to propagate.
it has been more than 8 hours and no recognition.
smtp.merlin4x.com does not exist at
my email client is telling me:
Sending of message failed.
An error occurred sending mail: SMTP server smtp.merlin4x.com is unknown. The server may be incorrectly configured. Please verify that your SMTP server settings are correct and try again.
so obviously I do not have somehow properly configured DNS or something else
