Hi, I’m hoping someone can help.
I have a Kajabi site hosted via Cloudflare. However my email is hosted with Fasthosts webmail.
I can send emails via both Kajabi and webmail but I’m not receiving any into the webmail account.
Fasthosts gave me some DNS records to add and I went through all the DNS records with a Kajabi specialist yesterday but still I’m not receiving emails into the webmail account. Please can someone help.
Here are screenshots of my DNS records:
First of all, as @epic.network pointed out, your MX record points to a non-existing hostname. I just assume the value from your x-named MX record is the correct one?
And you probably (I can’t be sure) don’t need the x record after that.
Then you have two SPF records for petraerving.com, which is not allowed. I’m not really sure what the 2nd record (with the ip4: part) is for.
The one with livemail is for fasthosts.
If you actually need the record with the ip4: part, you need to combine the two SPF records. Otherwise delete that record.
It seems Kajabi is sending mails from @kjbm.petraerving.com, thus an SPF record for the name kjbm. That is ok.
Then, you also have multiple mail-related DNS records proxied, all within the same 213.171… IP-range as that unknown SPF record. The names are mail and smtp. Again, if you need these, they have to be DNS-only, otherwise delete them.
The thing is, you have named 2 email services that you are using, but you have records for 3 email services, and the SPF record for that 3rd service is conflicting with fasthosts.
I don’t know what the 3rd service is for, so I cannot tell you to just delete them. Maybe they are there for a reason.
If you don’t use it, delete the records, but maybe make copies of them in a text file before you do so. This is about all the records that have 213.171… in them.
Also, the MX record for one of the other 2 services, the one that has mailserver.petraerving.com as its target, is definitely incorrect. I don’t know the correct value with any certainty, but you probably want to use the value from the record right below it (mailserver.cmp.livemail.com).
Do you mean the MX records that point to the mxb.mailgun.org? Do I delete it/them?
The x-named record Fasthosts gave to me, so I’m assuming that is the correct one. I don’t understand what you mean by the ‘x record after that’
the DNS mail and smtp, do I keep them, or delete them? Or do I change the setting to DNS only?
You are speaking to a total non-techy person here, so frankly I have no clue what I’m doing. I’ve just been going by what various people have been telling me: Kajabi and Fasthosts and no one seems to actually resolve the issue. So, if you are the techy genius, please bear in mind you’re talking to a beginner lol
I am so appreciative of your help. I’ve been trying to get this rectified since Monday and since then, I haven’t been receiving any business emails into my webmail account. They are sending OK through Kajabi, but I’m not receiving any.
I know it’s a big ask, but would you be able to mark on the screenshots I shared, which records I should change or delete, or add? Would that be possible?
