Not getting any email from my Virtualmin Server

Not getting any email from my Virtualmin/Webmin Server

What can I do to fix this ???

| OS type and version | REQUIRED |
| Webmin version | REQUIRED |
| Virtualmin version | REQUIRED |
| Related packages | SUGGESTED |

would be a start so we might know the basic info.
we can only guess what users have been set up - set up a user test@your - then look at the mail.logs to see if anything is being received.
I assume that you have tried sending a test email from your Usermin account. so is it still showing as not sent in Virtualmin?

It sounds as if your DNS at your registrar was not set up correctly.

There are two ways to handle the DNS.

  1. Use the registrar.
  2. Use Virtualmin

I’m guessing the is the default for eNom? I don’t know there interface. But if you use their DNS you usually specify the address of
your server somewhere in their DNS settings section.

If you go option 2, you must generally set up ‘glue records’ somewhere on the site. They may insist on two separate addresses. One name server isn’t considered adequate.
