 can't donate
Author: P.Marione   (21 May 07 8:21am)
I try to donate mail5.ageofnelson.org.

My provider changed the MX record

ageofnelson.org. DEF.TTL IN MX 10 mx3.x400gateway.com.
ageofnelson.org. DEF.TTL IN MX 50 relay.mx.skynet.be.
mail.ageofnelson.org. DEF.TTL IN A 194.78.171.170 ageofnelson.org.
DEF.TTL IN A 217.145.32.61 www.ageofnelson.org. DEF.TTL IN A 217.145.32.61
Then I got a message from you
"Unfortunately, it appears there are some problems with your donation(s). Specifically, it appears the changes you made to your DNS records are not correct. We have attempted to identify the problems for errant donation(s) below. "

I asked the provider who answered:
There is no IP attached with mail5.ageofnelson.org.

Which IP have I to use?
The one of my server or on of yours?

Thank you in advance,
P. Marione

That's an odd response from your DNS provider. I assume they want to have an A record in order to setup an MX record. While this really isn't required, it's fine to setup. You should use your own web server's IP address for the A record (or if you don't have your own web server, you can use something random... like Google: 64.233.187.99). Then you want to point your MX server at the domain we have assigned you.

Good luck! Thanks for your help with the Project.
