1. Hi,

    I'm having problems with MX records....

    If
    - I create a new SOA for mydomain.com
    - Then create an MX record:
    - No Name
    - Type: MX
    - Data: my.mailserver.on.another.domain.com
    - Preference: 10
    - TTL: 86400

    If I do a DNS report with something like http://www.dnscolos.com/free-dns-report.html

    it reports that the MX record is my.mailserver.on.another.domain.com.mydomain.com
    (ie MYDNS is somehow joining the name of the server that I put into MyDNSAdmin with the name of the domain???)

    What am I doing wrong???

    Thanks!
    James.

    ok
    i can tell you why u getting mydomain.com.mydomain.com part twice

    when you setup your DNS recoard
    you setup "mydomain.com" as the TOP level
    so anything you add to that domain is
    webmail = webmail.mydomain.com

    to your problem there
    sorry i dont own an real DNS address
    so i cant help anymore than that simple heads up

    give me 10 mins as well to think bout something as well

    try for the data for the MX record
    put in the IP of the mail server
    see if thats works for you

    You must put a dot at the end of the hostname:
    my.mailserver.on.another.domain.com.
