Hello, I'm setting up the MX records for my domain name, and the mail provider (mailhostbox by xtraorbitz) is not being able to verify it.
I think it is expecting a different format in the zone file.
This is what they tell me to configure:
Add following MX entry
congresointeractivo.org. 86400 IN MX 100 mx1.mailhostbox.com.
congresointeractivo.org. 86400 IN MX 100 mx2.mailhostbox.com.
congresointeractivo.org. 86400 IN MX 100 mx3.mailhostbox.com.
Add the following CNAME record
pop.congresointeractivo.org. 86400 IN CNAME pop.mailhostbox.com.
And this is my current zone file:
@ IN SOA NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. hostmaster.congresointeractivo.org. (
1380205577 ; last update: 2013-09-26 14:26:17 UTC
3600 ; refresh
900 ; retry
1209600 ; expire
1800 ; ttl
IN NS NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM.
MX 100 mx1.mailhostbox.com.
MX 100 mx2.mailhostbox.com.
MX 100 mx3.mailhostbox.com.
@ IN A 188.8.131.52
www CNAME @
pop.congresointeractivo.org. CNAME pop.mailhostbox.com.
The difference seems to be the format in which they expect the entries to be.
When they try to *verify* that the MX is properly set up, it fails and I'm lost now.
