Is there somebody who can answer to my question??

Well, you need to provide a lot more information for us to venture a guess what's wrong.

How did you create the two domains? What software are you using? Virtualmin? Did you create separate top-level servers? Or aliases / sub-servers?

Are you operating your own nameserver? How did you create the zones? What names exactly are failing? You talk about "www" and "mail", how did you create those two hostnames?

I have created the two domains using virtualmin. The two domains are top level servers. Yes i am operating my own nameserver. The zones where created automatic by virtualmin script. The www and mail hostnames i created myself with an ipv4 pointing to my external ip Can i send you an e-mail with a printscreen of the setings?

Yep, that'd be a good idea. If possible, maybe you can create a Virtualmin login for me on your system so I can take a look at it myself.

You can send the data to locutus -at- If you're using an instant messenger, we can use that too to chat.

The problem has been solved thanks to LOCUTUS! 1000 Thanks to him. My opinion: call locutus with confidence.

Thanks Iulian for the vote of confidence! :D

To finish up this rather harmless issue, maybe this can help others: Iulian tried to access a SquirrelMail installation using the URL, which Virtualmin does not by default set up for Apache access. Solution would be either to add "mail..." to the Apache setup in the server template, or - and that's preferred - use "" for webmail (which Virtualmin automatically sets up with a forward of one's choice) and "" for access from email clients only.
