Default I think I figured out what was happening . ..

Hey Falko.
Thanks for the help. A few days ago it struck me that this may have been happening because of my records with my DSL provider, so as a test I removed the MX entries entirely from the ISPconfig's DNS Manager (I unchecked the DNS-MX button).

After a few hours I came back and checked and it was resolved. I'm going to go to COVAD's site, remove my MX records there and recheck my DNS-MX box on ISPconfig to see if this gets me working.
I can now send email, but receiving is still busted . . . Please let me know your thoughts.

Take a look at my previous post. The covad nameservers are authoritative for your domain, so there's no use creating DNS records on your ISPConfig system.

Default OK, so I started from scratch

So I went to COVAD's site and whacked my DNS records entirely and I regenerated them. I still can't seem to send email or receive. This is what the DIG outputs look like now . . .
DIG MX . . . .

I really don't know where to go from here . . . I'm really stuck and if anyone would be kind enough to walk me thru this I'd REALLY appreciate it. I also turned off ALL DNS and DNS-MX records from IPconfig's side, just as the previous post requested . . .

Thanks and HELP!

Did you change the nameservers?

Default My DNS info is broken I think

Hey! I went to COVAD's site and brought my DNS records back to their standard. I'm going to guess that is the reason my records look different. Now, I CAN receive email on the account, but only the emails that state that state there are services not running . . . I cannot receive any other emails and sending emails get the error that "relay access is denied"

This is getting more bizarre by the minute. What I'd ultimately like to do is have my ISPconfig server provide as many of the DNS services as possible, to make me as independent of the COVAD's of the world as possible . . .

Thanks for the help.

Here is a guide that explains a complete dns server setup with ispconfig:

http://www.howtoforge.com/ispconfig_dns_godaddy

this should work with any domain registry, not only godaddy.

Default That's more than I can handle now . . .

Hey Till. Thanks for the super quick response. That document you sent the link to involves a bit more hardware than I have, so I can't be as independent as I'd like . . . HOWEVER . . . what I did to clean the slate is deleted my site and client, and made new ones. I made sure NOT to click any of the DNS and DNS-MX boxes, and I went to godaddy and reentered my DNS info. I also went to COVAD and made sure they had my records set up.

I think I have a few ailments though. For one, I can't seem to send or receive email. I have defined new email users for the site I created, but none work. The only user that seemed to work was the user I made to match one of my sysadmin accounts on the box. I defined a new user and it doesn't work at all. How can I first check to make sure my basics are set up right?
It doesn't seem the email is working right and I can't figure out why?
Thanks again!

Default DNS Hell

Hey Trexen

In my DNS records for COVAD, I have everything pointing to my IP address . . . So I have purposely not clicked the DNS and DNS-MX checkboxes in the ISPconfig.

The issue is that I think there may be something else wrong within ISPconfig . . . My mail isn't working and none of the new mail clients I make work either . . .

Please have a look at the mail log and post the errors that might be listed there.
