<OS> I am useing windows xp home with sp3...
<DNS> is installed on windows, it "works" but i haven't been able to really figure out how to get the thing to relay my mail between the world on the internet and my mailserver. I bought a book and thi thing is like seriously over my head...lol.
<HMail> is my email server, it is set and ready to go, It works locally but cant send out because everyone rejects outbound mail sent... and it cannot receive mail sent from outside my network.
<ISP> comcast business class w/ static ip, and gateway router... I have my webserver on the gateway, and i want to use my static to connect to my dns... Comcast tech support assured me that i can do this...
<domain registry, and setup> I use netfirms, which will only allow me (since i cant really afford their hosting packages) will not allow me three mail boxes, and i can only use their service to check them... (not what i want!) with their help i set up the mx pointer to my dns servers ip (which is a lil out of date... but thats not my issue here) it is a sub domain (mail.jessefender.com) with an a record (173.160.XXX.XXX <-gateway)the bind server i am using is on my netbook, seeing as all i want is a mail address for me, and an non-reply out going only....e.g. [email protected], and [email protected]..
The issue i am comming up with is for some reason, it is really difficult to find s "simple" way to set up the dns server to point to the mail server and allows the mail server to send out with out having mainstream servers like google and yahoo, freak out when receiving mail from my mail server.
Any suggestions about good reliable suggestions as to tuts or walk thrus in how to configure my dns server to do what i have attempted to explain what i need to do?
If you need more information i can try to get more detailed information to you...
Edit: Whoops i forgot... If you want to see what is going on, nslookup > mail.jessefender.com will show that it is set up right on the registrars server... just not on my end... /End Edit
Thanks For the suggestions
