    The real MX record is like this:

    Code:
    mh1:~# dig mx seventh-scent.com
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.1 <<>> mx seventh-scent.com
    ;; global options:  printcmd
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 46864

    So mails for seventh-scent.com are handled by mail4.zoneedit.com and mail5.zoneedit.com.

    Maybe a stupid question but should it be pointing to my server "server1.web-worlds.com" or not?

    Thanks

    How come that when I do a dig mx seventh-scent.com I get a different outcome:

    Code:
    server1:~ # dig mx seventh-scent.com
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.4 <<>> mx seventh-scent.com
    ;; global options:  printcmd

    If you want server1.web-worlds.com to handle the mails, then yes. But make sure that server1.web-worlds.com exists in DNS.

    I guess in /etc/resolv.conf you have listed nameservers that hold zones for web-worlds.com but aren't authoritative for the domain.

    Hi,

    Been toying arround a bit but I still cant get it right, my setup is the domain is registered via godaddy, and there point to DNS server of Zoneedit, and then Zoneedit points it to my server web-worlds.com.

    So now I set in Zoneedit a MX record for seventh-scent.com to web-worlds.com, is that right, or should I allready do it with Godaddy DNS info???

    And second, is this also related to outgoing mails ??? cuz I presume not, so why is my PHP form mails not coming trough and more?

    Thanks,
    Web-worlds

    Ok, so I sent you an e-mail, but in case you dont get it, I hope this will do. Check your e-mail, you have my contact info.
    That's my server doing the scanning that got your shit caught. I typically try and avoid business connections since the people in control have something real to lose by getting listed. I feel bad, so I'll help you secure it, or if nothing else add you to a blocklist for my software. E-mail me, we'll talk.

    Your MX record is looking good now:

    Code:

    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.1 <<>> mx seventh-scent.com
    ;; global options:  printcmd
    ;; Got answer:

    but there seems to be a problem with your mail server. It hangs at the telnet prompt:

    Code:
    mh1:~# telnet web-worlds.com 25
    Trying 87.66.12.16...
    
    so you should check the mail log for errors. Also make sure your firewall doesn't block port 25.
