How to trace a private IP address to its mail server.
Posted on 2005-04-29
2 part question. I am trying to assist a poetential client of ours with his email. I used a DNS query to try and find his MX records. I typed in his domain name and his name server. Nothing comes up. The strange part is, he is using email addresses with email@example.com but his in going and out going is a private IP address. My problem is that i cannot find where his MX records are sitting? I am also mystified on how he is even able to use his email? Although, he does complain of sending an email out and getting a response "unknown host" but an hour later resending the same email and it goes through...Unfortunately my client has no idea either.
