Please help me to resolve DNS/MX mail server issues
first, please excuse my english.
I come here because I need help to resolve issues with DNS/MX records about my mail server.
I built my own mail server at home using debian 7, Iredmail server and afterlogic webmail.
Everything works good.
My mail server is SMTP capable, but I prefered to use my provider SMTP (provider is free SAS, a french provider that allow to use his SMTP service if the mail server is on one of his static IP)
So I have a static IP from free SAS, then I prefer to use the SMTP service from free SAS because I thing I have less risk of being seen as a spam.
I have my own domain pointing to my mail server.
This server is only doing mail server + webmail access, nothing much (apache, mysql, postfix ...).
Every port of my router are well forwarded.
My registrar is bookmyname.com.
It allows me to manage personnal DNS.
I am really newbie with DNS settings, but spent long time to try understansting what to do ...
Here it is what I set on my registrar interface:
www 28800 A mystaticIP
mydomain.com. 3600 TXT "v=spf1 ip4:mystaticIP -all"
@ 28800 MX 10 mydomain.com.
@ 28800 A mystaticIP
So, It works but when I check my DNS with google apps tool box it results some errors I don't understand:
When I check with dnssniffer.com:
I don't really understand what to do I would ask some specialists help please.
NB: I didn't know if it was safe to write my domain name and my IP so I replaced them, if it helps I could give the real domain and IP.
Thanks a lot for answer.
