Mail Server Setup: Connection DNS Server

I am setting up a mail server and under the Connection, it is asking for DNS Server.

What does it want there?

I have put in the IP address of the webserver and also the same IP address used at my registratar in the DNS Template.

But it rejects it when I test it. It says "DNS query test failed." What does it want there?

Depending on what is providing DNS to your clients will be the IP address you use in that location. If it is the router that is the DNS server then you will need to use that. You may also need to open specific ports if they are being blocked on the router or firewall.

I found it out. There is a little link next to the field and it auto-detected the Rackspace dns servers. I could also use google's open dns servers, etc.
