Put Mailserver on a different IP
« on: March 05, 2017, 10:07:33 PM »
When I orignally installed CWP It placed my mail server on my main IP, ever since I switched to CloudFlare; its handling all my IP's my question is.
Is it possible to use my (Other IP) that's not associated with my WebServer or Cloudflare; handle all my Incoming/Outgoing Mail for my mail server; instead of my main Domain? - rDNS - rDNS

Using the hostname on my main domain; it points it to my cloudflare; is it possible to change the hostname, to align with my other IP for the mail server instead? Or would that conflict with the whole web server?

I put the hostname as because that's whats assigned to and both check out; but not able to receive "ANY" incoming mail; associated with my domain's email; I can send, but not receive. And the SPF is still my old VPS IP, I went through the Postfix to "Rebuild" the Everything including the SPF and that didn't do anything. MY DNS for my domain is this.      86400      IN      NS      86400      IN      NS      0      IN      A      0      IN      A      0      IN      MX      5
mail      0      IN      CNAME
www      0      IN      CNAME
ftp      0      IN      CNAME
forums      14400      IN      A      ;

Mail is suppose to be pointed to because that's the main domain that I'm going to be sending from BUT how do I add the IP to link to ? which is a completely completely different IP?
