MX records incorrect on Dnsstuff.com, but are correct everywhere else?
Posted on 2008-10-03
I am using Godaddy.com to host websites and DNS records for a number of sites.
Tests are being done at dnsstuff.com
Every site I have is configured to use the same FQDN of our single mail server.
When you perform a dnsstuff.com "dnsreport" the same FQDN will report 2 DIFFERENT IP addresses.
All of my sites but 1 report the correct IP address and FQDN of the mail server.
I contacted GoDaddy as this appeared to be a certain DNS problem on their end. I ended up getting someone who knew what I was talking about and he advised that they had a "blown zone file" on the DNS server. He said he was going to reload it, and I should be good in an hour. Its been 30 hours now...and nothing has changed over at DNSStuff.com
I then used nslookup to query the nameservers listed at godaddy for the FQDN of the mail server. They are correct at Godaddy...but aren't updating whatever DNS servers dnsstuff uses for themselves.
Also, some domains are having trouble sending email to the domain in question.
Most DNScheck sites on the web indicate the correct name/ip...but some do not.
Is 30 hours not long enough to wait for propogation when the zone file is bad and their tech was mistaken when he said about an hour? Or is there something worse going on here...?
