Help with email

I added my domain to email, then I have configured all necessary DNS records in my godaddy account. But am I still not able to receive nor send emails?

Any help, please?

You should check log /var/log/exim4/mainlog

What’s your domain?

1.- I see you are on Oracle Cloud, Oracle blocks by default outbound port 25 so you won’t be able to send emails directly. I’ve no idea if they can remove the block but in that case you must use a smtp relay like smt2go, brevo, etc.

2.- Your mail server identifies itself as

❯ telnet 25
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
221 closing connection
Connection closed by foreign host.

But that domain doesn’t resolve:

❯ dig +short

3.- Also, your ip should have a PTR record pointing to that hostname but it doesn’t:

❯ dig -x +short
