Er, just to be clear... you e-mailed easyspace, right? They're the party hosting your DNS, they are the people who need to make the change. By the way, you need to specify that you want your MX record to point to your own IP (and give them the hostname to point it at) otherwise they won't be able to help you. As far as they are concerned, they already setup the MX correctly (it points to them).

Oh and one more thinbg, my router (Alcatel Speedtouch) has a field for a domain name. Previously I had entered just something genereic. Now that I will be porting mail and such like thru the router, should I change this to cybertrex.co.uk or can I even leave this blank? What is the significance of such a field?

Hi there, not sure if you guyz get a msg to say that I am leaving a msg with an existing post but just to say that my ISP have corrected my MX records and mail should be on its way to my server. Does the user@ name HAVE to correspond to the usr name on the server, or does "aliases" make for otherwise?

As long as you run postalias to update the aliases...

The user@ can be either a local user or a defined alias.
