Default ¿DNS email configuration problem?


I have problems with email reception. I think it is a DNS problem, but I'm not sure about it and how solve the problem.

I have installed ISPConfig3 in a OpenVZ virtual machine (Debian Lenny minimal template).

Failure notice:

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at ns1.otherdomain.org.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

Sorry, I couldn't find a mail exchanger or IP address. (#5.4.4)

This is my configuration:


1.- My hostname

# hostname

# hostname -f


2.- My IP (Fail Over)



3.- DNS records in my ISP provider (OVH):

mydomain.org DNS

DNS server name DNS server IP
ns1.mydomain.org 111.222.333.444
ns2.mydomain.org 111.222.333.444
server1.mydomain.org 111.222.333.444
ns.kimsufi.com -


4.- DNS Zone and Records
Like http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...26&postcount=8

DNS Zone
Server: Server 1
Client: -
Zone (SOA): mydomain.org.
NS: ns1.mydomain.org.
Email: admin.mydomain.org.

A mail 111.222.333.444 0
A mydomain.org. 111.222.333.444 0
A ns1 111.222.333.444 0
A www 111.222.333.444 0
MX mydomain.org. mail.mydomain.org. 10
NS mydomain.org. ns1.mydomain.org. 0
NS mydomain.org. ns2.mydomain.org. 0


5.- Mail Domain

Server: Server 1
Client: Client 1
Domain: mydomain.org
Spamfilter: Normal
Active: Yes


If I change the Mail Domain to mail.mydomain.org, I can send and receive email in mail@mail.mydomain.org.

But if I change the Mail Domain to mydomain.org, I can't receive email in mail@mydomain.org.

Any idea?

Default Solved

Now, the email (send and receive) is working correctly (DNS propagation, I suppose).

OK. I'm grateful for your work.

I will be a subscriber!

Thanks and cordial greetings,
