I want to send and receive Internet mail.
I have done these:
1.SMTP->Basic SMTP used when sending message outside the local Internet domain (Enable)
2. I have the domain document and the connect document
But I can not receive Internet mail. My server's IP is 126.96.36.199. I use the freemail to send one mail to my server. Here is the console display:
2001-10-11 18:24:45 SMTP Server: 188.8.131.52 connected
2001-10-11 18:24:46 SMTP Server: Message 0039330A received
2001-10-11 18:24:46 SMTP Server: 184.108.40.206 disconnected. 1 message[s]received
DNS: Non-existent domain
2001-10-11 18:24:48 No route found to domain 220.127.116.11. Check DNS configuration.
2001-10-11 18:24:49 Router: Transferring mail to domain ST.UESTC.EDU.CN (host ST.UESTC.EDU.CN [18.104.22.168]) via SMTP
2001-10-11 18:24:49 Router: Transferred 1 messages to ST.UESTC.EDU.CN (hostST.UESTC.EDU.CN) via SMTP
A quick nslookup on 22.214.171.124 shows no DNS record. My guess is your server is not registered in DNS by your hosting provider/domain registrar. That also probably means you are lacking an MX record, which is necessary to route SMTP mail to your domain. You need to get these records created.
