    Are you using your own name servers sut up wirh ISPConfig?

    Email server is the FQDN of the server that handles your e-mail. How many servers do you have?
    question 2 is too compicated, I do not understand.
    But I do know that e-mail server must have port 25 open both out and in. Also on the connection to your Internet Service Provider.
    There has been lots of discussion about e-mail not going in past two weeks.
