    Hello

    I am having a problem getting email to work via the server. I only have one account on the server (in this example we will call it aaa.com)

    I am new to this and wondered if the MX record for aaa.com should be - server18.aaa.com, mail.aaa.com or just aaa.com

    I seem to be able to send email when it is aaa.com or server18.aaa.com - but not mail.aaa.com - However no matter what the settings, I cant seem to recieve any email to any account.

    If you need more information to help - please ask and I will give it. This has just got me very confused and I am now desperate!

    Thanks in advance for any help people offer!

    In WHM Edit DNS Zone File

    aaa.com. 14000 IN MX 0 server18.aaa.com.
    mail.aaa.com. 14000 IN A 000.000.000.000

    don't miss out the dots after the domain names and 000.000.000.000 is your shared IP or dedicated IP for that account.

    In WHM Editting MX for zone aaa.com.db
    server18.aaa.com

    Any help for you?
