    My email in outlook doesn't work with my mail.myfootballforum.com as the server name. But it works with my ip address in it. Why is this and how can i get it to work withe "mail.myfootballforum.com" as the server.

    Thanks

    Please try creating a mail CNAME record in the DNS Zone of that domain if there's none yet.

    The domain is using the following nameservers:
    NS2.VPSLAND.COM 12.178.10.42
    NS1.VPSLAND.COM 209.190.16.131

    When I try to do a DNS lookup on your domain using those servers, it times out. You should make sure both of those servers have a DNS server running, and that there is no firewall blocking the queries. There may also be an improper configuration, but you can't know that until the DNS lookup actually reaches one of the nameservers.
