My server sends mail, but does not receive mail

My server sends mail, but does not receive mail. I have connected linux server with cyberpanel application. I am using cloudflare on a domain for SSL. I have setup all DNS there. I have implemented SSL on domain and webmail from cyberpanel. I have also installed SPAMASSASSIN.

Hi @thesutariya,

I know you’ve said you’ve configured all DNS but can you confirm if you created an MX record for your domain or not? This does sound a lot like not having an MX record.

  • I’ve checked the DNS and updated it several times but it still doesn’t work.

    Visit this link for the current DNS records list -

    Please guide me for the DNS records and webmail services to work.


    • Hi @thesutariya,

      Looking at your MX record for your domain, it’s mail. Having said that, when I try and ping it, I don’t see it working.

      With that being said, you need to change the MX record to point to where your e-mails are hosted.

      • is my digital ocean droplet IP address.

        I am using a digital ocean for webspace and mail service, I have installed a cyber panel in the digital ocean for easy access.

        After that, I have linked the domain and hosting using Cloudflare for SSL purposes. I have set all DNS there as you have seen in this image -

        So, please can you describe to me the DNS records for this structure. I will delete all existing DNS and set it up again.

        Please do needful.
