    MX records - setup help

    Ok having probs getting my head around mx records, hosting etc.

    Have exchange 2003 setup, internal email only at the moment.

    have registered a domain with 123-reg.co.uk

    now in the control panel or 123-reg i have dns settings, i have added

    mail.penybontprimary.org.uk [my nat ip]

    and

    the MX record

    penybontprimary.org.uk. Priority 10

    Now i am unable to ping my penybontprimary.org.uk doamin name or its IP (194.154.164.90)

    I tried portqry but it wouldnt resolve.

    Now before I start banging my head agains this desk, has anyone any suggestions ?

    Cheers

    SI

    Hi pooley,

    I am able to ping the domain and IP from our place with no problems. Have a look at this website and run your domains through the A and MX lookups to see if the results match with your control panel. Remember that it can take upto 48 hours for DNS records to update globally, but are usually pretty quick these days.

    Works here too. Get the 123-reg homepage.
