I have a local domain that has a Linux box connected to ADSL. The
Linux box is the primary nameserver running BIND9. I have easyDNS has
a secondary nameserver and mail spooler, in case I go down to spool my
mail. Also, all http (80), smtp (25), and pop3 (110) ports are
forwarded to my Sun box, hostname suburban.
The Sun is running sendmail and a pop3 server. I can send mail out
just fine. But, I can't recieve mail. I get "Too many hops" error.
From what I've read, this is probably because I have a loop somewhere,
but I don't know where.
Here's the cache of my DNS:
$TTL 86400 ; 1 day
adoy.com IN SOA ns.adoy.com. root.adoy.com. (
MX 10 smtp.adoy.com.
MX 20 smtp.easydns.com.
ftp A 188.8.131.52
localhost A 127.0.0.1
ns A 184.108.40.206
pop A 220.127.116.11
smtp A 18.104.22.168
www A 22.214.171.124
As you can see, my domain is adoy.com. Everything points to the same
IP address for the Linux box to handle. As for mail and http traffic,
that is forwarded to my Sun box with local IP addy 192.168.0.2 (Linux
I have smtp.easydns.com has the backup mail spooler. All mail should
go to smtp.adoy.com first then to smtp.easydns.com if that fails (If
this is wrong, let me know).
Like I said, I can send mail out just fine, but can't recieve it.
