How to set up locally hosted email server using NAT
am facing a very tense situation and cant find an answer on the internet. I am trying to setup a mail server, Smartermail specifically.
I have NAT running and have done port forwarding in my router as well.
public ip: 115.*.*.* ----> private ip: 10.10.1.19
domain name: abc.com
mail server name: mail.abc.com
i entered following entries in my DNS:
A mail.abc.com --------> 10.10.1.19
MX mail.abc.com ------> 10.10.1.19
reverse DNS 10.10.1.19 ------> mail.abc.com
i can send email within the domain but i cannot send or receive emails from the internet.
i have done the port forwarding part in my router and everything is ok. Can any one tell me what entries do i need to enter in DNS to send receive emails.
??? please help??

Your DNS entries need to contain your public IP.

You should change your internet connection settings.
