I recently migrated the domain jimedlin.com to Cloudflare registration and DNS (from Namecheap). Now I am no longer receiving email at that domain. I thought I followed the instructions for email setup correctly - screenshot follows. But no joy
When I do NSLOOKUP for another domain I host on the same server (not yet migrated to Cloudflare) I get this:
> set q=mx
webmond.com mail exchanger = 10 mail.webmond.com.
But when I try the same on the domain I moved to Cloudflare I get this:
> set q=mx
*** Can't find jimedlin.com: No answer
How do I fix this?
Your MX record looks like it points to an IP address. It should point to a hostname.
Thanks for this suggestion. I have changed the MX record as follows, but email is still not making a connection.
This is what I see when I try to telnet:
$ telnet jimedlin.com 25
[ crickets ]
The result I’d hope to see is more like (another domain on same server):
$ telnet webmond.com 25
Connected to webmond.com.
Any further thoughts?
example.com isn’t going to respond to Port 25, as that’s a webserver hostname. It’s also not what MX records point to. Try Port 25 on mail.example.com
Thanks @ sdayman! Working now.
