    Morning all,

    I am trying to configure my mail server but i cannot send of receive.

    I have followed this install

    http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-ubuntu-12.04-lts-apache2-bind-dovecot-ispconfig-3

    With the exception that during the install I didn't have my domain name so just used example.com. I now have my own domain name and as best I can tell have change all configs to mydomain.co.uk i test the mx all seams ok, I then test the SMTP via http://www.mxtoolbox.com/.

    and I get
    The test e-mail is sent to test@example.com. how do I change this?
    The second issue is, Is this stopping me sending and receiving e-mails. I have been able to send an e-mail to myself but not outside the server. (ie to my gmx account etc)

    I have scanned the posts (see below) and 25 is open so this is ok.

    Therefore i am now at a lose as to why it isnt working any help would be appreceated.

    Thanks
    Mark

    Ok an update to this,

    I can now receive e-mail but i am still unable to send. i am testing to send a to a large company but i get the response below.

    I have mailed to have the IP unblocked but i still need to correct the
    Reporting-MTA: dns; server1.example.com

    How do i do this?

    Ok this post can be closed, it would appear that since my IP is dynamic it will not be unblock, so i will be sending all mail via my ISP mail.server.

    regards
