I've been at this for a week now, scoured these forums, and still no joy. Here's my setup:
I run 3 sites off of ispconfig but haven't used any of them for mail. For the first two my service providers route mail straight to Google Apps using the MX Records I supplied. Site works, mail works, no problems. For the third site running on ispconfig I used a different (very "low key") service provider and he has a different set up and can only forward "all traffic" to my ispconfig server. He says that all mail is pointed that way too.
So, now, I need to sort out all the MX records and whatnot on my side, through ispconfig. I think
I've done everything as I've seen it explained on these forums:
I have these mx records, in this order:
And I have selected "external mailserver" under the sites' Options.
On the Google side I've verified my domain correctly and am now just staring at my third "We are checking MX records for your domain. This may take 48 hours to complete." - this one's been up for over a day so far and I'm not holding out much hope.
there's something wrong with my basic ispconfig setup that I just haven't noticed until now as I haven't yet needed any email functionality. Possibly there's something wrong with my nameservers (is that possible???). I have some public nameservers' ip addresses in at the moment.
Please can someone give me some ideas as to what I can check?
Thanks a lot (for anything at all - really)
