WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hi,

I have bought domain (lets say example.com) at forpsi.com and I am using them as a DNS. I would like to be able to receive email to myname@example.com and for a start have it arrive to my local mailbox at webfaction. With the settings bellow, I do not receive any email when I send it to the desired address.

What I have done:

-In forpsi, set DNS record for MX (more than 24h ago, also they have this weird format that you put priority before the address):

Domain       TTL   TYPE  VALUE
example.com  1800  MX    1 mx7.webfaction.com
example.com  1800  MX    2 mx8.webfaction.com
example.com  1800  MX    3 mx9.webfaction.com   
example.com  1800  MX    4 mx10.webfaction.com

-in the webfaction panel, I set the local mailbox and added the desired email address among the e-mail addresses and set it's target to be the name of the mailbox.

Any idea what could be going on or what else to set?

Thanks, Daniel

What you describe sounds correct. I would suggest that you post a support ticket, so we can check what is the exact problem with your domain.
