OK...Checked and rechecked and I'm sure I have forwarded ports 25 and 80
on the router for my mail server. Yet I continue to get "connection to
host lost" when I attempt to telnet. Stumped!

Hi Marvin.

Well, looking at this, it does not seem to be a problem with your MX
record, if I look at DNSREPORT it reports an MX record that points to
mail.nubiint.com that resolves to the ip address of your router, so the
problem may be port forwarding on your Router, check this and then lets
see where to go next :-)

Hope this helps

Sure. I'm at nubiint.com. This may be a novice mistake, but I somehow
feel that we've been down this road before. Thanks again.

Hi Marvin

Creating an MX record on your internal DNS server will not work, the MX
record needs to be on a DNS server that is available to the Internet, if
you let me know what your domain name is I can give you a better idea as
to what DNS server you need to update.

Thanks

Thanks for the quick response Mark. I did read this document and some of
the others listed on the site. The only problem I had was trying to
figure out which external DNS server to use. I use bellsouth for DSL
server and TZO to host my own web and email servers. I've created an MX
record for this server internally and I thought that was all I needed to
do. I had this working one once and I wasn't sure if I entered an
external DNS server in the Delivery options or not. Other than that I've
done all listed in that particular doc.

I am not sure if you have read this article, but it explains exactly
what you need to do:

I know this topic has been discussed many times here but I can't seem to
get it working. I'm trying to configure my E2K server w/sp3 to receive
internet mail. I'm sitting behind a linksys router on a w2k network
running sp3. I'm able to send mail externally with no problems. I am
however unable to telnet to port 25 on my mail server. I keep getting
connection to host lost errors whenever I attempt to telnet. I have
created a new Recipient Policy and I'm using the default Relay
Restrictions. Can anyone assist or point me to a suitable resource? 

Thanks in advance
