    Talk to your web host, their support should help you fix this.

    Without knowing the domain there's really nothing one can say apart from speculate that there's a missing record in your DNS which just needs adding or the server you are on has badly configured DNS so the forward and reverse mapping doesn't match. Either way get their support to fix it for you.

    check and make sure your domain has a

    A , MX , PTR and SPF records

    A - needed for website ( not really for email but you should host a site ;] )

    Mx - Mail exchange when mail is sent to you it searches for these to deliver your mail

    PTR - Point to resource - bascaly the reverse of a A record

    SPF - Sender Policy Framework used to Prevent Email Forgery , some server will reject mail not having a record match...

    Hope it helps :)

    The A, SPF, MX etc records need to be added on the server where the DNS (name servers) assigned to your domain are hosted. It shouldn't necessarily be your Plesk server on which the domains are added. If you are using DNS that are hosted elsewhere, the above records should be present their. What is your domain name btw?

    Most important is nameserver records.

    if you have a hosting, just provide the nameserver of the hosting server in domain control panel.
    and all other basic records will be automatically created by the hosting server

    Check the MX record for your mail server or contact your web hosting provider for it.

    Just click reset DNS at Advanced DNS setting or just contact your web host provider to check MX entries.

    make sure you specify MX record for your mail server, and your mail server should point to IP using A record.

    MX:
    IP4: (The main server interface IP cannot be removed from this list if it is present. The following IP is the main server interface IP:...)
    Include List:
    All Entry: OK
    Overwrite Existing Entries: OK.

    Thanks in advance.

    A: <IP>
    MX: mail.<host>.com or <IP> of your mailserver.



    Both above are very important for DNS to function.
