Why isn't my MX mail working!?
Let me first start off by saying that yes, I am a complete Noob when it comes to VPS. I have always been using shared hosting but decided to join the VPS. BUT I am very computer nerdy so I pickup things really quickly.
I have managed to get my website up and running and used Ubuntu 12.04 and installed ZPanel.
My domain was parked in Godaddy so I changed all the settings over there to point to my IP address. I don’t have any problems with the website and uploading files to it etc. In other words -
I can send e-mails - But I cannot receive them!
I have changed the settings in the MX records in godaddy multiple times and have copied it from what is presented in ZPanel and it just doesn’t work.... I keept getting email bouncebacks that there is some SMTP error or something.
Is there something I need to activate on the actual digital ocean server?
Your help would be soo helpful…
