Does your router forward port 81 to your ISPConfig server? Any errors in your mail log?

dear falko,

login to the squirrelmail is ok now. i can send an email from squirrelmail to my personal email address, e.g. qiubosu@gmail.com, but have problem when reply from the receiver, e.g. qiubosu@gmail.com, to the sender, i.e. web1_admin@smartracksolutions.info. i think the configuration/setup for the whole system isn't right yet. do you have any idea on this?

thanks.

If your registrar runs the nameservers for smartracksolutions.info, you can create the necessary DNS records there via a web interface.
Hello Falko,

the above is your reply for one of my previous questions.

if i want to host my own email server, do i need to use the nameservers run by my registrar for my server domain smartracksolutions.info? if not, what nameservers should i use?

thanks

hello falko,

do you mean to create an A record for ispconfig.smartracksolutions.info when login to my registrar account or through the ispconfig2 web hosting system installed in my ispconfig2 server?

thanks.

hello falko,

i'm re asking some questions i asked you before, which i didn't fully understand them then. to resolve the accumulated confused questions will help to understand the whole system better.

if i want to create mail.smartracksolutions.info server under my ispconfig2 server, ispconfig.smartracksolutions.info, where should i create the subdomain mail.smartracksolutions.info? in the /etc/hosts file? or through my ispconfig2 web hosting system? or through my smartracksolutions.info domain registrar?

thanks.

That depends on who is running the authoritative nameservers for smartracksolutions.info. What's the output of
Code:
dig ns smartracksolutions.info
?
