    Is there anything in your mail log when someone tries to send an email to the server?

    Did you check if the MX record of your domain points to the server? You can check that as follows:
    Code:
    dig mx yourdomain.com

    Hi newbielinx,
    I tried that at this time it seems that I can send only, however it seems that an email has just come through from a gmail account that was sent yesterday.

    just a quick update...........

    I have 2 servers on two different broadband ISP's
    server 1 has been running for 5 years plus on debian/ispconfig2 with no real problems.
    It can receive mail from server2 and from gmail and yahoo etc.

    Server2 is the one that I am testing now and is also running on debian but with ispconfig3.

    It can send and receive mail to gmail yahoo etc but cannot receive from server1.

    Any Ideas?

    Dio server1 and 2 handle the same domains? In that case server1 probably thinks it is responsible for the mail so that it doesn't leave the server.

    Any errors in server1's mail log when you try to send to server2?

    Hi falko,
    I have the domain in question on both servers, however the dns is pointing to server1 for the last 3 days.
    This is in the mail log on server1 when trying to send mail to website on server2
