I have a newly-transferred domain where I set up the DNS servers, IP address and MX records with Register.com. I have a static IP. The name of my server is nordlawmail.nordstrandlaw.
local and for some time yesterday, both inbound and outbound mail was fine. This led me to believe that my MX record was correct: nordstrandlaw.com = nordlawmail.nordstrandlaw.
local - this was first set 4/25/05 at 4:00p.m. However, some time today, external inbound mail stopped getting to me with no bounce-back. www.dnsreport.com
mail test is reporting Getting MX record for nordstrandlaw.com... Received a SERVER FAILURE response.This should be treated as an ERROR (per RFC974), and the E-mail delivery should PROBABLY be retried later. Also, the DNS report says under "MX" FAIL: ERROR: I couldn't find any MX records for nordstrandlaw.com. This is a standard SBS Windows 2003 installation. Is it possible that DNS hasn't propagated fully and that I had temporary connectivity? Is there a way to find out where mail sent to "email@example.com" is going? Is this a problem with my server setup? I looked at the default SMTP Virtual Server and it's Access Control is set to Anonymous like it should. I added another MX record hoping it would help: nordstrandlaw.com Med 184.108.40.206. Thanks much for any and all direction.
