Ok, I built a successful MAIB server and tested it fully to find it working well. However, when I tried to add a second email domain I have nothing but trouble. So, I must have done something wrong.
I will layout my example here and hopefully someone can tell me what is wrong. (the ip addresses and ulr’s are fictional just to be example of my problem)
I created my email server at 123.4.321.5 and bought “bkm-mail.com” as the URL for it.
The server in MAIB is called “box.bkm-mail.com”
All of the above worked properly when I created the email@example.com email address and started using / testing it. All additional email addresses added to the box on the original domain work perfectly. There is nothing hosted on the default text site bkm-email.com since the box is only an email server.
I have another domain called bkm-shop.com that I am using to operate an online point-of-sale application and it is on ip address 18.104.22.168 and I want my original MAIB server to handle the email for bkm-shop.com
I also have a storage server where I send compressed data backups of my point-of-sale located at ip address 22.214.171.124
Here is a representation of how I configured the DNS setting at the registrar:
You can see that I have pointed my main URL and my store URL (where the POS system lives) to 126.96.36.199
I have pointed my backup storage to 188.8.131.52
At this point everything broke related to my bkm-shop.com locations.
When I log into the admin panel for box.bkm-email.com I see that I have all green check marks, but there are some unusual things that do not make sense.
- What have I done wrong?
- Why can’t I access my POS system any longer?
- Do the nameservers not allow DNS pointers to work properly?
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated as I would like to get this to work.
Thanks for looking…
