I recently imported a client account from cpanel. We also moved their domain to a new registrar.
I now host their website and email on my shared hosting system server1.domain.com
Now I am striking a problem that I cannot make sense of…
So, heres the problem…(well 2 problems actually)
- If I set the client mx record to server1.domain.com their email fails
However if I set client mx record to mail.clientdomain.com emails start working.
I have another client on the same system (not imported via cpanel) which uses mx record server1.domain.com and their emails are working.
I don’t understand how this can be? Is this something the cpanel import has done to the virtual server itself?
Both client accounts have A records pointing at the same server1.domain.com IP address and their websites are functioning perfectly. It’s just the mail that is not right.
- Also, server1.domain.com is using ssl cert domain.com (which is also the first virtual server on it …ie my hosting business website). When I view ssl certs from postfix, I notice it’s displaying as domain.com (and not server1.domain.com).
However, underneath that is says,
