It took me about a year to decide to spin up a Mail in a box server on Digital-ocean, but here it is online and ready for mailing and serving me… I thought
The next day i run the “check-option” and discovered that my domain & ip was listed in the Spamhause DB.
I must tell that everyting passed the checks the day before.
I followed the install tutorial from the official website off MIAB. I run it on a DO droplet (ubuntu 18.04) and named the droplet to: box.mydomain.com (the same as my hostname).
ok that done, i am coming close to the my question:
In my Digital ocean account (droplet settings of MIAB) i have the option to “manage my domain”
Here i created two A records as:
and i pointed them to the ip of my DO droplet of MIAB.
Do i have to add more records here? Or maybe even remove these records, since MIAB handles dns itself? … little confused here
Like i said, it’s a noob question and i am still learning, but isn’t that the way how everybody started there journey into experience?
And i contacted Spamhause to remove my domain from the blocklist, and they responded with, we have unlisted youre domain from the blocklist
So i don"t want this to happen again.
I did check the ip addres off my MIAB droplet for any blacklisting, before installing MIAB, and the ip was not blacklisted, so i think there must be a problem here with my dns settings somewhere…
I hope someone can help me out here, because i really like Mail in a box for future usage and just bought my domain three days ago.
