mail server name resolution problem
Posted on 2007-10-01
We have a single windows 2000 server which is providing our dhcp and dns services. (well it is now, as we have just changed this over from our router providing this). Each client collects ther mail directly via a POP3 connection. Most things work OK, but for some reason we cannot use our mail server name ie mail.mailserver.net in our mail server settings. We can however use the IP address. I presume this is a DNS problem, but don't know where to start resolving this issue. If this does not work, maybe there is something else that also will not resolve correctly.
Anyone got any ideas?
