I've setup a postfix mail server, my domain points to my server as I'm already hosting the website. However I cannot send any mail to the mail server. I've added the email's such as casper@one3community.com into the postfix file by following a digitalocean tutorial. however on sending the email via my gmail acccount to the postfix server I get this error:

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

 casper@one3community.com

Technical details of permanent failure: DNS Error: 59683476 DNS type 'mx' lookup of one3community.com responded with code NOERROR 59683476 DNS type 'mx' lookup of one3community.com had no relevant answers. 59683476 DNS type 'aaaa' lookup of one3community.com responded with code NOERROR 59683476 DNS type 'aaaa' lookup of one3community.com had no relevant answers. 59683476 DNS type 'a' lookup of one3community.com responded with code NOERROR 59683476 DNS type 'a' lookup of one3community.com had no relevant answers.

    Nobody will be able to help you until you post here: 1) your postfix config, taken with the command "postconf" and 2) your postfix log corresponding to the misreception of your email (from /var/log/mail or something). In a perfect world you will make second, verbose postfix log with debug level 2, so we will see in detail what is going there. You can hide (scramble) sensitive information there, but do it so we could still relate things. Don't change message identifiers (they're not a sensitive information). And, please, use formatting features, such as code blocks, to make your post readable. – Nikita Kipriyanov Jun 12 '16 at 18:53

You write:

my domain points to my server as I'm already hosting the website.

This is wrong, and it is one of your two problems.

The name www.one3community.com points to 104.27.163.48, so far so good.

Mail, however, is sent to the MX record of the domain, and failing that it is sent to the IP address of the domain. There is at the time of writing no MX record and no IP address for one3community.com.

If your postfix server was running on the same IP address as your web server, you should add to your DNS:

one3community.com IN A 104.27.163.48
one3community.com IN MX 10 one3community.com.

However, your second problem is that 104.27.163.48 does not reply on TCP port 25, so the above configuration will not fix your problem. Since the machine replying on port 80 seems to be Cloudflare, you should probably consult with them.

  • I added a photo of my DNS records I just updated. Do they seem okay? – Casper Round Jun 12 '16 at 22:01
  • Also would going through cloudflare effect it? – Casper Round Jun 12 '16 at 22:04
  • The screenshot seems OK, what I see in the DNS right now is not as good since the MX cannot be a CNAME. Going through cloudflare will certainly affect things. – Law29 Jun 13 '16 at 4:48
