email set up.JPG

Hi I'm trying to set up mail plus server but I'm not very tech-savvy, I configured my A record using the tutorial from Synology but the MX record was vague, could someone help me by explaining what goes in the host and points to section in the dns settings , i though the host section would be the host name of my nas so it would be mail.mydomain.com or would it be the ddns same of my nas . for the points to section do i put my static IP?

Hi,

Don’t change host (keep it “@“)
In “Points to” put your “mail.mydomain.com.”
That’s if you actually have your mail under “mail.mydomain.com.”, if not, just put “mydomain.com.”

Try that please.

Edit: corrected by adding the trailing dot. Forgot about that.

Where are you entering this info?

Should be on an authoritative name server.

If you go to the below and check both, your A record and MX record (from the drop down menu), does it return your public IP address? Check MX for both, mail.mydomain.com and mydomain,com and see.

In case you’re trying to configure this on Synology’s DNS server, I’d suggest that you try your domain registerer first. It’s easier and usually this service is provided by them for free. You should be able to login and edit your DNS records.

That’s how I did it (didn’t try Synology’s DNS for this).

Im using uniregistry as my dns server and I updated the dsn records on that , so far I've updated my a record and MX. i don't think the problem is the dns records , do i need to enter the static ip my isp provided me with in the nas , if so how do i do that ?

If you have a static IP address then there’s no need to ask your NAS to update anything on the DNS (DDNS).

Are you forwarding port 25 on the router to your NAS?
Do you have any firewalls enabled?

Do any changes if necessary and check with the MX lookup tool above.
