Exclamation Netfirms Dyndns postfix dovecot mail server

Hi

I have a mail server on suse linux 10.3 box running postfix/dovecot. I can send emails locally with the suse users.

I need help setting up my netfirms account to be able to send out emails from my suse box and receive as well.

How do I setup netfirms mail server. What do I point to for the netfirms service to recognize my suse mail server.

I have tried MX records but I dont know what name to use. Should I put mail.'domain'.com or ????

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank-you

You can use any IP address or FQDN that's pointing to your server.

Yes, but you can use any other FQDN as well. Use one that you like.
