    Hi,
    I am trying to find out the procedure i followed for my incoming mails.
    I have done with dynamic Ip,using dyndns for domain and configured postfix for relaying through my ISP.Right now i am able to send as well as receive mails as [email protected]_domain to local and external mail ID's.Now i would like to know who is responsible for my MX record ? is there any way to find out who is forwarding my mail to my domain (i am not using dysdns for mail MX record).
    Thanks

    If you want to find out the authoritative name servers for your domain, run
    Code:
    dig ns yourdomain.com

    but both the commands will give the same result ..
    pls see the output:

    dig my_domain_name MX


    ;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
    my_domain_name. 1800 IN SOA ns1.dyndns.org. hostmaster.dyndns.org. 2063968927 10800 1800 604800 1800

    dig ns my_domain_name

    ;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
    my_domain_name. 1800 IN SOA ns1.dyndns.org. hostmaster.dyndns.org. 2063968892 10800 1800 604800 1800

    i have configured postfix for relaying through my ISP mail server so i can send mail externally but i am able to receive mails as [email protected]_domain_name from internet too.now i want to know who is responsible for my incoming mail.

    Did you set nameservers in your registrar's web interface?
