    I know my postfix config works very well because when I install a fresh installation of postfix and ispconfig it doesnt hange for about approx 1:30 while recieving a message.

    my question is.

    why does it hang? is it normal? how do you fix it?

    I have dns records with MX.

    What's within your mail-log files?


    Do you see any related error message within /var/log/mail.warn or /var/log/mail.log ?

    The top one is my hostname and the bottom 2 are my isp's dns servers.

    Can you try
    in /etc/resolv.conf instead?

    omg!! thanks!! that fixed it...

    whats the logic behind using those nameservers? so I know for future referance.

    and where did you get those nameserver ips?

    I guess the other nameservers you used before don't work or are down.

    I don't remember where I found them, but they are nameservers from German ISPs.
