    Yesterday I set up a new server with CentOS3.4 and Cpanel. I restored all accounts from my old server. I am using the same ip address as the old server now on the new server.

    Everything is ok, BUT I can't recieve email from extern domains ? Only when I send an email from an account on my server to another account on the server, then I will recieve it.

    Problem solved, was due to the firewall....

    Go on, have a guess
    Are you still having the problem? I just ran the dnsstuff report and it connected OK. However there was an error that you don't have a reverse DNS record setup for the IP address of the server:

    dig -x

    That does not return a fully qualified domain name, which it should (usually your NOC would have to set that up for you). However, that problem wouldn't normally prevent you receiving email, just sending it.
