Changed domain name, now problems with email


Aug 23, 2005
I have an account for someone who was running for office. After losing the election, the domain name was changed. There was a lot of database programming so I could not move or delete the account. I changed the domain name, DNS info, MX info and have gotten rid of all references to the old domain name. There are problems with email now. The website and database are fine.

I did the Mail Troubleshooting and it says there are errors in Mail Routing, Filter Alias File and SMTP Destination. I've checked DNS and MX info several times and even comparing it to the other successfully running accounts. I cannot find the problem. I believe somewhere it is still referring to the old domain name.

Would anyone know how I could fix this problem?
