    Hey everyone,

    I am new to the cPanel forum, but I have been a user of cPanel for about 4 years. I have encountered a weird issue with my mail server setup, and I am not too sure what direction to take with it.

    I am trying to setup Mail to send and receive my emails <jacob>[at]<nivsu.com> (just incase this post gets crawled with spam :)) using the mail servers:

    Incoming - mail.nivsu.com
    Outgoing - mail.nivsu.com

    Incoming sets up fine, however, when setting up the outgoing, I get this message:


    However, I can set up the outgoing mail server to "mail.auroralive.com.au"; and it works fine (points to the same name servers and on the same server etc).

    Any ideas or recommendations on a good mail server setup?

    Cheers,

    Jacob

    Hello :)

    Upon checking, I do not see an "A" record added for "mail.nivsu.com":

    Code:
    [~]# ping mail.nivsu.com
    ping: unknown host mail.nivsu.com
    You will need to ensure the "A" record for "mail" is properly configured at the DNS host for "nivsu.com".

    Thank you.
