HELP! Domainzero with Everyone.net email!


New Member
I recently got myself a domainzero acct and subscribe to everyone.net's email service.
i don't know how to set it up!! i followed their instructions and it doesn't work. another guy had a similar prob and posted it on their bbs, i followed that, and it still doesn't work!!!!

i know there's a few guys on this bbs that has domainzero and everyone. please help!!!!

this is wot i put:

Hostname: "mydomain.com"
Address: sitemail.everyone.net.
Record Type: MX(Mail)
MX Pref: 0
Yes i did.
so did i do it right?
there is a fullstop/period after everyone.net? ie "sitemail.everyone.net."

also i think i saw somewhere "mydomain.com." instead of "mydomain.com" which one is right?
When dealing with DNS entries, if you are using a full qualified domain, you have to end it with a period. If you are just mentioning a subdomain, the system (usually some BIND) will append your hostname to that.

So... for: http://www.mydomain.com can be written:

mydomain.com. IN A
http://www.mydomain.com. IN CNAME mydomain.com.


mydomain.com. IN A
www IN CNAME mydomain.com.
