  • DNS and E-mail Conflict

    Hi everyone
    I have windows server 2003 with domain environment, and the users in the office using windows xp pro and they all connected to the domain.
    In the beginning, I had a problem of too much time when the user did log in, so I insert the DNS Server address on each station but the problem is that the pop 3 e-mail does not work. I do not have exchange server, and Iím using my hosting pop 3 e-mail.
    When I remove the DNS server and restart the computer, so then the e-mail is working.
    Please let me know what to do, I know that the DNS server should be in each station but why its doing this problem, the error massage that Iím getting is : cant connect to pop 3 e-mailĒ.
    Thank you

    how did you configure you're DNS server?
    Do you use forwarders to de DNS servers of you're isp?

        does the client find the ipadress?
        for example:

        pinging mail.domain.com [external Ipadress]

        and, is you're internal domain name the same as you're external domain name?
