problem setting up mail server

Posted 20 September 2012 - 10:38 PM

So I have 2 domains pointing to the same contents, same ip (1.2.3.4). They are using name servers on the same registrar, with A records both pointing to 1.2.3.4.

MX records are mail.xyz.com and mail.abc.com
TXT record are grabbed from cpanels.

but when i login to xyz.com, go to webmail, the identity becomes abc.com?

How do I fix this? somebody helps?

thanks

What do you mean

?

MX records point to an A record, if mail.xyz.com and mail.abc.com don't exist with A records then your mail won't work, also setting it up as an MX record for mail.xyz.com would mean you can receive mail @mail.xyz.com.

Anyway, when you're logging into webmail, this means absolutely nothing and so has absolutely nothing to do with an email infrastructure, webmail is just something that accesses it.

To be able to help properly it would be better to know your full setup (including a dump of DNS).

To add to RudiVisser's reply, please keep in mind that your ip address can only have one reverse dns. So you can get an ip from any name, but you can only verify one name from an ip. Thus one of your mail servers will have a higher chance of getting flagged for spam.
