Subject Re: Free DNS service required
Date Tue, 12 Aug 2008 11:16:35 GMT

Hi thanks for your reply. I added my DNS in dnsserver tag of config.xml which
is <server></server> and later I tested my DNS (
and found SMTP blocked . Now I need a free DNS service that has SMTP enabled
to test my mail server. Is it clear to you now..is there any such service?
