I'm trying to move an email server we have using SmarterMail to AWS. I've provisioned a new EC2 instance using W2016, installed the software and assigned a new Elastic IP. I've opened ports for what I think it's required as in:
But still don't receive any emails there. Any ideas on what I might be missing?
I've just got this answer from Amazon after submitting the form here https://aws.amazon.com/forms/ec2-email-limit-rdns-request?catalog=true&isauthcode=true
To assist, we have checked and confirmed that there are no email sending limitations on your account. Additionally, we also tried to configure the rDNS entry for disgrafic.es as 126.96.36.199, however this attempt failed.
The mapping for this reverse DNS entry is failing because the PTR record doesn't match the A record for that domain. We currently require the forward A record to match the PTR record for all reverse DNS entries.
You can either provide us with an alternate hostname, or configure the A record for this domain to match the desired PTR record on your side.
Looks quite strange to me this thing. If so that basically means I can't have a server for the web (with the @ and www domains) and a server for the email. Or am I missing something here?
