Question

Cant sent emails - godaddy as emailprovider

Hey there,

I got a problem.

My site is hosted by DO. Now I want to use godaddy as mailprovider. Here are my DNS records on DO:

CNAME records: smtp.example.com | smtpout.secureserver.net. | 43200 imap.example.com | imap.secureserver.net. | 43200 pop.example.com | pop.secureserver.net. | 43200

MX records: example.com | smtp.secureserver.net. | Port 0 | 14400 example.com | mailstore1.secureserver.net. | Port 10 | 14400

I checked my DNS Records on https://dnsstuff.com and got the following error:

Acceptance of postmaster Mailserver rejected mail to postmaster. Mailservers are required by RFC822 6.3, RFC1123 5.2.7, and RFC2821 4.5.1 to have a valid postmaster address that is accepting mail. The Mailserver provided is:

68.178.213.243 | unexpected response to [RCPT TO: postmaster@example.com] | 550 5.1.1 postmaster@example.com Recipient not found. http://x.co/irbounce 68.178.213.37 | unexpected response to [RCPT TO: postmaster@example.com] | 550 5.1.1 postmaster@example.com Recipient not found. http://x.co/irbounce

Acceptance of abuse Mailserver rejected mail to abuse. Mailservers are required by RFC2142 Section 2 to have a valid abuse address that is accepting mail.

68.178.213.243 | unexpected response to [RCPT TO: abuse@example.com] | 550 5.1.1 abuse@example.com Recipient not found. http://x.co/irbounce 68.178.213.37 | unexpected response to [RCPT TO: abuse@example.com] | 550 5.1.1 abuse@example.com Recipient not found. http://x.co/irbounce

What should I do now? Or what do the error mean?

Thanks for all the answers!

Best regards Matthies
