Description

Hi all,

After talking with Mallory Knodel I logged into Network Solutions at 2AM EST and pointed the DNS to May 1st servers of r www.mecaforpeace.org ) Middle East Children's Alliance) . Since then ALL @mecaforpeace.org emails do not receive email. From some web searches, it looks like something is off with the MX records? I can be reached anytime at 917 217 6809

Hi Danny - i'm sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

I looked at your MX records - you are pointing most of them to google, but you left one record still pointing to daza.mayfirst.org (since you have no email addresses set up on daza, any mail sent to daza is going to bounce). i just removed that setting, so things should start to work. But it might take a few hours for the changes to propagate.

Thanks Jamie-

The MECA folks are still unable to send emails to one another. Any thoughts on why this might be happening?

Thanks,

-Mallory

Weird... maybe a gmail dns caching issue?

  • Status changed from new to assigned

What's going on with this? the MX records for mecaforpeace.org all appear to point to google's mailservers:

0 dkg@pip:~$ host mecaforpeace.org
mecaforpeace.org has address 54.245.97.158
mecaforpeace.org mail is handled by 10 aspmx.l.google.com.
mecaforpeace.org mail is handled by 30 aspmx3.googlemail.com.
mecaforpeace.org mail is handled by 30 aspmx5.googlemail.com.
mecaforpeace.org mail is handled by 20 alt1.aspmx.l.google.com.
mecaforpeace.org mail is handled by 30 aspmx4.googlemail.com.
mecaforpeace.org mail is handled by 30 aspmx2.googlemail.com.
mecaforpeace.org mail is handled by 20 alt2.aspmx.l.google.com.
0 dkg@pip:~$ 

Mallory, can you follow up on this?

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

I'm assuming MECA's email is hosted at Google, so I'm closing this.
