this is my first time (well the past 3 days) hosting my own accounts on a VPS. I have this with heartinternet and also had a resellers account which I'm now trying to transfer everything across to the VPS. I have now figured out how to get the domain working so happy with that. Now I seem to be having trouble with the emails as I cant login, and I don't fully understand how this works.
I have had a look at the DNS settings and have the following A record:
mail pointing to my servers ip.
I also have 2 MX records, blank and '*' which both point to mail.mydomain.co.uk.
My questions are as follows, what are A records, MX records and also do I need to set anything up in WHM.
Any help is much appreciated.
