    hi,
    i have a problem with a domain name on a CPanel server that works fine for years but now suddenly cannot access/use the mail server (mail.domain.com) to send /recive e-mails anymore and i also cannot ping and tracert it as it gives a routing error. There wasnt' any changes for about 6 years.
    Can please anyone suggest me where to give a look? The domain itselve and all other services related to the domain works fine. Also DNSSTUFF output seems ok exept that he cannot find the mailserver.
    Please note that connecting to webmail works fine and can recive/send mails.
    Thanks a lot

    Does your domains zone file still have the mail entry like:
    mail IN CNAME domain.com.

    hi..

    sorry for bringing this one up.. but i've been trying to figure this one out... i'm facing the same problem... and i didn't quite get what's been said. can someone clarify things a bit for me?

    for instance: IN CNAME... what's that? where's the domain zone file? how do i access it?
    and.. "/etc/usersdomains ... it this file is ok." ok? as in? what do check it against?

    im terrible at figuring things out, sometimes.
