    This is from dnsreport page:
    MX 	FAIL	MX Category
    ERROR: I couldn't find any MX records for If you want to receive E-mail on this domain, you should have MX record(s). Without any MX records, mailservers should attempt to deliver mail to the A record for I can't continue in a case like this, so I'm assuming you don't receive mail on this domain.
    Mail 	FAIL	Connect to mail servers
    ERROR: I could not find any mailservers for
    I have only one domain hosted right now. I use that same domain to configure my dns servers at being the website
    I CAN send and recieve mails, at least from my cousin at gmail. I have postfix. "Maildir" option checked. "Default MX" option checked. Mail server configured at host "www" and my ip "200.104.78..." (under CNAME record)

    Do you want to see my config files under /etc/bind? am I doing something wrong? I did configure the mail server after all my other servers, but that should not mean anything does it not?

    You will have to add an MX record for in the authoritive nameserver for

    If this is your ISPConfig Server, go to the DNS manager, open the SOA record for and add an MX record with an empty host and mailserver

    I guess you checked "Default MX" for only, not for (which should be on the Co-Domains tab), because there's an MX record for

    but nor for

    Ok, i did what you requested, but nothing changed. Maybe this syslog is the answer? Maybe my isp is blocking port 25?

    Please talk to your ISP to find out if they block port 25.
