I'm having somehow a strange issue :s I can send to all addresses. I can send and receive to and from all internal addresses. I "can´t receive" from external addresses. Well can´t receive is not accurate, the mail is not delivered to the appropriate Mailbox. Mails are being identified by greylisting. Code: Oct 15 03:08:11 r22146 tumgreyspf: Initial greylisting: REMOTEIP="184.108.40.206" HELO="220.127.116.11-static.reverse.softlayer.com" SENDER="[email protected][email protected] Code: grep "tumgreyspf" /var/log/mail.log | wc -l 30 No mail deferred.

As such the full FQDN of this server in question is sub.domain.com All domains are working as expected to the exception of mail server when related to incoming mail, no issues in sending email. my A and MX records for mail are properly setup for every single domain. A little more of wierdness ;s Internal Nslookup Code: nslookup -type=mx virtualdomain.info Server: 127.0.0.1 Address: 127.0.0.1#53 virtualdomain.info mail exchanger = 5 mail.sub.domain.net. External nslookup Code: nslookup -type=mx virtualdomain.info Server: unknown Address: 192.168.1.1#53 virtualdomain.info mail exchanger = 5 mail.sub.domain.net. Any Clue???
