    hello,

    i have some problem with mail redirects, the server receives the mail for a redirect account but cannot send it to the redirect address.

    log file error:

    "C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Plesk\MailEnable\Logging\SMTP\SMTP-Debug-040924.log":

    09/24/04 17:58:10 Error (1460): Could not resolve MX list for domain [hotmail.com]
    09/24/04 17:58:10 [58A00A8E82114EB1825C0BD27C08.MAI] Sending message

    i have tested several nameservers

    does anybody know something about this?

    here you can see that the lookup for mx works properly:

    > set type=mx
    > hotmail.com
    Server: UnKnown
    Address: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

    Non-authoritative answer:
    hotmail.com MX preference = 5, mail exchanger = mx4.hotmail.com
    hotmail.com MX preference = 5, mail exchanger = mx1.hotmail.com
    hotmail.com MX preference = 5, mail exchanger = mx2.hotmail.com
    hotmail.com MX preference = 5, mail exchanger = mx3.hotmail.com

    hotmail.com nameserver = ns4.hotmail.com
    hotmail.com nameserver = ns1.hotmail.com
    hotmail.com nameserver = ns2.hotmail.com
    hotmail.com nameserver = ns3.hotmail.com
    mx1.hotmail.com internet address = 64.4.50.50
    mx1.hotmail.com internet address = 64.4.50.99
    mx1.hotmail.com internet address = 65.54.166.99
    mx1.hotmail.com internet address = 65.54.252.99
    mx2.hotmail.com internet address = 65.54.190.50
    mx2.hotmail.com internet address = 65.54.252.230
    mx2.hotmail.com internet address = 65.54.166.230
    mx2.hotmail.com internet address = 65.54.190.7
    mx3.hotmail.com internet address = 64.4.50.179
    mx3.hotmail.com internet address = 64.4.50.239
    mx3.hotmail.com internet address = 65.54.167.5
    mx3.hotmail.com internet address = 65.54.253.99
    mx4.hotmail.com internet address = 65.54.190.230
    mx4.hotmail.com internet address = 65.54.253.230
    mx4.hotmail.com internet address = 65.54.167.230
    mx4.hotmail.com internet address = 65.54.190.179
    ns1.hotmail.com internet address = 216.200.206.140
    ns2.hotmail.com internet address = 216.200.206.139
    ns3.hotmail.com internet address = 209.185.130.68
    ns4.hotmail.com internet address = 64.4.29.24

    ok finaly i fixxed it, yeehaa :)

    solution:

    running diagnostics:
    "C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Plesk\MailEnable\Bin\MEDIAG.EXE"

    running install tool again:
    "C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Plesk\MailEnable\Bin\MEACTWIZ.EXE"

    run regedit and search for the old DNS IP, replace with new one

    reboot

    that's pretty well it.... :)

    bye
