Cool I must configure what to receive emails posted to me


Hallo,
I m using SuSE 8.0, and i have sendmail configured so i can send emails using sendmail, and the received email will have the adress hikha@lpar.dori.com in the <from> field
but when i try to send an email to this adress (hikha@lpar.dori.com) from a gmail account (for example) it fails and it bounces and the i receive the email telling that:
****************************************************
This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:
hikha@lpar.dori.com

Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: DNS Error: Domain name not found

****************************************************

We suppose here that the domaine lpar.dori.com is already registred
so when i tape: $> host lpar.dori.com
lpar.dori.com has adress xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
$> host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.IN.ADDR.ARPA domain name pointer lpar.dori.com

what i have to do in order to send emails to hikha@lpar.dori.com and to retrieve them. ? must i configure a pop3 server or what ?

thanks (you can reply me to: sos_linux@hotmail.com)

Exclamation RE: I must configure what to receive emails posted to me

i think that the MX and A records are already set up..
i juste made a mistake, the real host name is node06.lrap.polymtl.ca
you can verify if this host is registred in DNS
thanks...

You need to contact whoever hosts your domain and or DNS records

DNS records are not always hosted with the domain only you know this

Sometimes they supply a user interface which allows you to modify your own records otherwise you will have to make a request for an MX record to be added pointing to the IP of your mail server
