DNS Server Change - Affect Email


I have ever made a DNS Server change and I was curious how this is going to affect my e-mail.

Lets say this is my URL - www.testURL.com

I also have my e-mail setup as MyName@testURL.com

I now have a new host so we are going to change the DNS settings so www.testURL.com now points to the new web host. Is this going to affect my e-mail address MyName@testURL.com or do I also have to make a request to get the e-mail changed as well?

Change Email Address In DNS Zone Template
When I load a new account into WHM a pre-figured email address is entered into the DNS Zone automatically using the DNS Template field %rpemail%

Can you tell me where the email address %rpemail% can be found and how to change it.

Also can I change %rpemail% to something else in that field so that the email address it calls up is perhaps the contact address for root or similar?

Host Will Only Update Domain Name Server (DNS) In Batches, Takes Several Hours For A DNS Change, Normal?
Host will only update DNS in batches, takes several hours for a DNS change, is that normal?
Well today my mail stopped working and it turns out the A record for mail was deleted. How it got deleted I don't know.

I called my host and after speaking to 2 techs, they said that have added my request to a batch, and that would update in a few hours.

I said to him, batch? What can't you do it instantly?

He said thats not the way their DNS works and any DNS change would affect thousands of other sites they are hosting.

Does anyone know what kind of dns system these people could possibly have where they can not reload a single zone?

And by affected, I think he means the sites will go down for a minute or so, while it relaods every zone. Is this really the case, or are these people just idiots?

Change Server And DNS
I currently have a dedicated server at volumedrive and want to transfer my site over. I have the following setting but not sure why it doesn't work.

On the WHM, I have:

Main >> Server Configuration >> Basic cPanel/WHM Setup

Main Shared Virtual Host IP........................12.345.67.89 (IP from the new host)
Hostname....................................................server.mysite.com
Primary Namserver.....................................ns1.mysite.com
Secondary Nameserver..............................ns2.mysite.com
___________________________________________

Main >> Networking Setup >> Hostname
Current Hostname..............................server.mysite.com
____________________________________________

Main >> Networking Setup >> Nameserver IPs

Ip 12.345.67.89 ns1.mysite.com
12.345.67.99 ns2.mysite.com
________________________________________

Main >> Networking Setup >> Resolver Configuration

Primary Resolver...........................................12.345.67.89
Secondary Resolver.......................................12.345.67.99
Teritary Resolver (optional)............................empty.

At the registrar godaddy, I have the existing name server set as ns1.mysite.com and ns2.mysite.com from prior server already. what other setting do I have to do to make my site working properly ?

Cpanel Domain Name Server (DNS) Setting For Email On 2 Seperate Server
This is the scenario, domain.com are setup on server1, however server2 also has the same profile of domain.com as we use ns3 and ns4 using domain.com. This works fine with the nameserver setup on server2.

However I encounter problems as the emails from server2 won't reach server1 as there are duplicate profile on server2.

My question is how do I setup the DNS in cpanel/whm from server2 so the emails from server2 will reach server1?

Server1 (www.domain.com)
ns1.domain.com
ns2.domain.com

Server2
ns3.domain.com
ns4.domain.com

Email And Domain Name Server (DNS)
I am having a slight email issue after moving my DNS to DNS Made Easy. On my wordpress blog I have it set to email me comments which the blog does just fine but ever since the DNS change I am having a weird issue. I use gmail for my email which threads emails. Now everytime I get a comment on the blog wordpress sends a new email and gmail doesn't thread them like it used to.

Do i need to add something to my DNS for mail. I never added anything and the server is obvisoulsy sending mail. Yep I am a noob and a little lost. I hope you understand what I am getting at here.

* GMAIL threads emails
* After DNS Change GMAIL is not threading my wordpress comments only
* Never added anything to DNS records in regards to email from the server
Thanks a lot guys. hope you got an idea. I did search google and wordpress with no luck.

I added a screencap of my DNS

Can Your Server Setup Affect Your Websites Listing
I set up my own webserver earlier this year using a dedicated server from my hosting company (IIS, win2003), for some reason two of my websites on there are not being listed by Google (or any search engine) at all. Could there be something wrong in my setup that can cause this to happen?

Does The Server Site Load Affect On The Child Sites
I have seen 1 vps provider having very poor ping results in few online ping sites and they have a very cluster slow loading pages as well.

One of my friend has a package with them, the ping results are very poor even for him as well. Just made an traceroute found its on some node1.vpsprovider.com

Ya, one more major important similarity noticed was, the vps provider emails weren't set properly to yahoo mail, and my friend's emails sent from the server to yahoo weren't delivered as well.

So if the vps provider has poor content may be due to firewall or internal settings do the systems under the node also be affected?

I have no problems with my host so nothing to be worried about, but need to help him as he is just starting it out with a cheaper vps

Server's Hostname/nameservers Affect Mail Delivery
our company is ordering a new dedicated server and we are a little unsure what we should choose as far as the full hostname and nameservers of this one server.

This server will have a couple different websites on it, but really, there is only one BIG website on it... let's call it abcd.com.

While most would pick a hostname of host.abcd.com for instance, if at all possible, we would like the domain name part of the hostname to be something different than abcd.com. We own a domain name that doesn't point to anything yet (unuseddomain.com) and we were wondering if we could use that domain in our hostname.. host.unuseddomain.com.

And instead of using abcd.com as the domain name for our own nameservers (ie. ns1.abcd.com, ns2.abcd.com), we would like to again, use the unused domain name we own (unuseddomain.com) for the nameservers domain name: ns1.unuseddomain.com, ns2.unuseddomain.com.

So...

Will this work? Is this perfectly acceptable?

And lastly...

Since the one website we really care about on this server (the one we got the server for in the first place) is abcd.com, is using the unuseddomain.com for the hostname and nameservers (as above) a bad choice in anyway regarding email deliverability? I understand that mail ISP's (hotmail, yahoo, etc.) do all kinds of checks on hostnames (PTR), etc... and we want to make sure that we aren't hurting ourselves in anyway by using an "empty" domain name that we own as our hostname's and nameserver's domain name.

For instance, if we send mail from the abcd.com account, it will use mail.abcd.com (1.1.1.1) as it's outgoing mail server... Hotmail will see this... do a reverse-dns lookup on 1.1.1.1 and see host.unuseddomain.com. See what I'm saying? It all will work, but will it toss up red flags?

IP Change / DNS
We are moving to a new rack at our DC. Now the IP addresses will change.
BUT.. we have a mailserver running, and all users are pointed at the current name "mailserver.domain.com" which itself is pointing to the old IP.

So far so good...

BUT we need to move that server to the new rack, and so we need to change the IP. But if we change the IP in the DNS, it will take till 24 hours for all the providers to propogate the new IP. For those users, the mailserver will be offline.

How can we fix that properly? So that no-one has any serious downtime?

Anyone got a clue on how to do so?

DNS - NS Change Not Working
I changed the name servers for my domain (ronin-studios.com) over a month ago when the site was moved to a new server.

Sometimes, however, when people go to visit the site they get the OLD site and forums.

When I do a ping from dnsstuff.com I get the old IP address. When I ping from other networking sites I get the new IP address.

Another stange thing: I use OpenDNS for my DNS servers and one day they will be hitting on the right IP, the next, it changes to the old IP.

Like I said, this was supposed to have changed over a month ago.

Want To Change Email Systems
I have had enough of email problems that constantly happen on a server. For about three weeks now I have been dealing with email issues that I am going out of my mind. Does anyone have a suggestion as to a email scheme that will work. Here is what I would like to do. Disable Exim COMPLETELY. Either setup a server for email only or find a email solution. Email will be pointed ONLY by way of DNS.Once I get email fixed on this box it works for a day and next thing you know it's all messed up again. Somehow etc/localdomains and etc/remotedomains either vanish or get over written plus a bunch of other things including permissions.All I know is this is getting ridiculous.I don't want any sort of email system on this box. I want all my email to go though DNS only to another server. We already have on service that we use for Exchange, so all the MX Records point to that server, but email still has to interact with this server first, which I don't want it to.

Does Switching IP Addresses Change DNS?
Recently my "crappy" hosting company decided it would upgrade the servers so I can't send them requests, use the control panel (as its being upgraded) and I really, really want to transfer my account from them to my new host.

Even though I pressed the button to transfer my account, it still hasn't happened - I've written letters, sent emails, done everything I can think of.

My last resort is through Nominet, and changing the IPS tag of my domain name (which runs out pretty soon) to 123-REG (or another IPS tag renewer).

My question is -- if I use Nominet to change my IPS tag on my behalf - would my hosting company still have the DNS settings? Can I still change them - or would it remain in their hands? - (I'm aware that I'd still be liable for outstanding fees, bills, etc).

New Domain - Can't Change DNS, Can't Use Nameservers,
I'm stuck. First let me explain how my current sites are setup. I have all of my personal domains through GoDaddy at the moment. I set each domain to point to GoDaddys default hosting nameservers. Then I create DNS A Records for my domain pointing to the IP of my webserver. That works.

I recently purchased a domain name from a backordering service. This domain is with a different registrar. They do not offer any kind of managed DNS and will not create A records for me. My server is not setup as a nameserver so I can't do either. I also can't transfer the domain over to GoDaddy because of ICANNs two month rule.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do? Is there a service out there where I can point to their nameservers and they will send traffic to my servers IP?

I'm not as sharp on this topic as I probably should be

Manually Force DNS Change
we're using a subdomain to point to one of our server's IP. (gaming purposes).

And people use this subdomain to connect to the game server.
However, We are going to move to a new server soon with a different IP.

I know, only thing I have to do is change the IP of the subdomain to point to the new server, however I know this will take like 1 to 48 hours to fully work.

Is there a way to force people who's still connecting to the OLD Ip to go to the new IP?

RFC DNS- Email
The reply my reseller gave me was as follows........

the domain overseas does not have the correct RFC dns entrys hence our mailserver will NOT accept NOR deliver email to it or accept from it. This may have not been an issue where you previously hosted due to the fact that they most likely used an insecure setup for the mail server. This issue is closed

-------------------------------

My customer can email his customers in china / russia just fine... but when they email him they get bounced back...

I do not understand RFC?

This customer has had different email problems with all of the 3 hosts he has been with. His last host mail worked fine 80% of the time, and he left because their servers were always down...

why mail from bk.ru eavangard.ru and tmag.com.cn and even yahoo.co.in

would be bounced back to the senders?

No Email Received After DNS Changed
I have a detected server and it host one domain with many sub domains account. I never used the cpanel DNS service, instead I used the hosting company’s DNS. .Everything was working fine (including the email) until I decided to have my own DNS. I used the domain register company DNS service to create a DNS records for the domain and all my sub-domains. The problem is the email did not work yet!! Here what I done with the DNS :

eg.com my domain and 1.1.1.1 the server IP address (e.g.)
Type--- Name ---- Domain -- Data ---Pref
A---- ---- eg.com ---- 1.1.1.1
A---- *. ---- eg.com ---- 1.1.1.1
A---- forum. ---- eg.com ---- 1.1.1.1
A---- mail. ---- eg.com ---- 1.1.1.1
MX---- ---- eg.com ---- 1.1.1.1----0
MX---- *. ---- eg.com ---- 1.1.1.1----0

I update the nameserver in the cpanel basic setup. It should work fine, I don’t know what goes wrong? I never touch the server configuration, the server was relay on external DNS service.

Here are the error that I got when I tried to send an email to the server :

info@eg.com
SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO::
host mail.eg.com [1.1.1.1]:

DNS & Email Spoofing
I got an email "failure delivery notification" but i did not sent that email. It had my email address though.

So I contacted host and got a very quick reply:

Quote:

The is caused due to the email spoofing. Someone was spoofing your email account and sending mails by adding the mail header so that the appears to have originated from the actual source. By setting SPF record correctly in the DNS zone of the domain, we can almost prevent this.

Here The SPF record was not setup correctly. Now we have made some changes in the SPF record in the DNS zone file "/var/named/domainname.com.db".

------------
v=spf1 a mx ip4:67.21.1.226 ?all -----> v=spf1 a mx ip4:67.21.1.226 ~all
------------

Now I can understand that they have quickly fixed the problem. BUT I need to learn more on what is going on here.

I can understand that email spoofing is that spammer is sending email with header that shows it is my email address (which it is not).

But I dont understand the second part that a DNS record fix it.

What does that DNS line mean,

DNS stuff is really complicated and am lost when it comes to it.

DNS Setup And Email Deliverability
I have a dedicated linux server that has 16 IP addresses... and one of those IP address is the main (or shared) IP of the server. So I can host a ton of websites on that one shared IP, and can optionally move individual accounts to one of the 15 other dedicated IP's if I so desire.

I put an account on it's own dedicated IP and it works fine. But I've noticed all my email being sent out is being filtered into people's spam folders... be it hotmail, gmail, yahoo, outlook, etc. My DNS is setup great as far as I can tell (DNSreport confirms) and I have SPF/domainkeys installed for this one account... so I shouldn't have problems authenticating my emails.

The only thing I can think of that would be causing problems for my mail being filtered as spam, is that since this account is on one of my dedicated IP's... that these mail providers (yahoo, etc) are looking at the incoming connection claiming to be the host, which is the main (or shared) IP of the server, and then looking at the MX record for the domain that the email address is, which points to that dedicated IP... and since they don't match... the email provider rejects the email cause the two IP's aren't matching.

Is this a valid assumption? And if so, is there anything I can do about it besides moving that one account back to the shared IP? For the life of me I can't figure this out.

No Reverse DNS=lost Email
I have a client coming to me from another provider. Their biggest problem currently is that many emails either vanish or some get emails while others don't.

I did a check on DNS Reports and found that the domain is on a shared IP address (800+domains) whereas its mail server points to another IP address. Neither of the IP addresses appear blacklisted in any spam databases. The only possibility seems to be the IP address for the web site which does not have have a PTR record (reverse DNS record).

Could this be why the emails are disappearing? They have even configured SPF for the domain etc. I would like to avoid facing a similar situation when the client moves to me.

DNS Email :: WARNING: One Or More Of Your Mailservers Is Claiming To Be A Host Other
I am setting up some website accounts on a new dedicated Linux/cPanel server that has 1 main (or shared IP) and 5 dedicated IP's. From what I understand.. all emails from any domain on the server will be routed through the Main IP of the server, even if the domain that is sending the mail is on one of the dedicated IP's.

I am trying to ensure that my DNS and mail configuration is setup in the most pristine manner possible, to ensure I have the highest email deliverability success as humanly possible (disregarding spf, domainkeys, etc.).

The most important website on this server is abcd.com. And I placed the abcd.com account on one of the dedicated IP addresses. So basically...

The Main (or Shared) IP of the server is 1.1.1.1

abcd.com is on the dedicated IP of 1.1.1.2

Looking at my zone record for abcd.com, I have the following (My host handles DNS so this is what my control panel reads):

Code:
@ A 1.1.1.2
mail A 1.1.1.2
ftp CNAME abcd.com.
www CNAME abcd.com.
@ MX mail.abcd.com.

This all seems pretty standard, but the problem I am seeing is that when I run a DNSreport on abcd.com, I am getting the following warning:

WARNING: One or more of your mailservers is claiming to be a host other than what it really is (the SMTP greeting should be a 3-digit code, followed by a space or a dash, then the host name). If your mailserver sends out E-mail using this domain in its EHLO or HELO, your E-mail might get blocked by anti-spam software.

mail.abcd.com claims to be host host.xyz.com [but that host is at 1.1.1.1, not 1.1.1.2].

How would I go about getting rid of this problem so it doesn't affect my email deliverability. It seems that any website I put on a dedicated IP is going to have this problem. So I am looking for any guidance or suggestions anyone may have on how to remedy this situation.

Sending Email To Another Server When The Email Address Domain Is On This Server
I currently have a domain on Server 1 (Linux, Apache, Ubuntu, Matrix control panel).

This server does not have any spam filter, so I have moved all the email accounts to Server 2 (Linux, Apache, Fedora Core, Plesk) which does have a brilliant spam filter; and have changed the DNS record for mail.domain.com to the IP address for Server 2.

Emails are being successfully received on Server 2.

On Server 1, when an email is sent through SMTP to an address at that domain, it does not send it to Server 2, it gets delivered to the hosting account for the domain on Server 1. So what I am guessing is happening is that Server 1 detects the domain has an account on the server, and instead of looking up the DNS info for that domain, just assumes it is on Server 1.

What I need to do, is force Server 1 to send email for that domain to Server 2. Is this possible, and if so, how can it be achieved? If more info about the server is required for a solution please let me know and I'll provide what I can.

Poll: Does Having A Dedicated IP On Your Shared Service Affect Your Purchase Decision
Just have a question for everyone. Does having a Dedicated IP on your shared service affect your purchase decision?

(i.e., When searching for Shared Web Hosting, do you make it a requirement that you get assigned your own Unique IP or do you not care if you are assigned the Main Box IP.)

DNS Setup - Hosting Website Internally - Email Externally
IIS 7.0 - I host several websites. On one of them, the email is hosted externally and not through my exchange server. I have added an MX record to point to the mail server for this domain, but I still get an error when I attempt to send an email from within my local area network. There are no problems with emails generated outside my network, but for emails generated to this domain from within my network, I get the following error:

The e-mail account does not exist at the organization this message was sent to. Check the e-mail address, or contact the recipient directly to find out the correct address.
<mail.<mydomain>.com #5.1.1>

Incidentally, the <mydomain> value does not match the domain for this email domain.

Instead it is the primary domain that I host.

I know that this must be a DNS issue, but I'm not sure how to correct.

Are Patched Domain Name Server (DNS) Behind N.A.T. Still Vunlerable To DNS Cache Poisoning?
Upon reading http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/08...sky_black_hat/ it appears those who use network address translation may be vulnerable to DNS cache poisoning even after patching their DNS servers.

"another 15 per cent are still vulnerable to some extent because they use network address translation gear that prevents the patch from working."

Thoughts?

Change Host, Change Domain And Getting Search Engines Up To Speed
Has anyone helped clients transition from one domain to another? Maybe dissolving a partnership or renaming their company... so a new domain name has been registered and a new website created.

2 Issues:

#1 Using .htaccess 301 redirect
We used the following command line in their old website's htaccess file

Redirect 301 / [url]

The goal was to get people try to visit any page of their old website (i.e. OldWebsite.com/contact.html) redirected to their new website (i.e. NewWebsite.com/contact.html). Isn't that supposed to change the address bar's URL, too? For some reason, I visit their old site and I seem to be redirected to their new website but the address bar still has their old domain name? Something is going on???

#2 Having their new company name for 2 years now. People can enter her new company name in Google, MSN or Yahoo. Her new company name appears in the search results but has the old domain name associated with it. We are trying to get rid of any reference to that old domain name? What's the easiest way to do this? So what people see in search engines is:

New Company
Short Meta Description
www.OldDomain.com

What steps did I miss in this transition?

What steps do I have to take on their old website/old web server to control it's appearance on search engines and make sure people get to the new website?
