2 server addresses the same?

  pookie 15:50 11 Nov 03


i'm no expert - just querying something i've been told. our company has had reports for about a week of people sending us emails for example to [email protected] and these emails either not being delivered or a message going back to sender saying no such user on that server. our server domain name eg @whatever.org.uk is registered to our company but we've been told that someone else could set up a @whatever.org.uk email addresses. therefore if someone sends me an email then it might go to the otherone first, find that i'm not listed and go back to the sender as no such user. can this be right and also if it is can i trace who has set up the other eg @whatever.org.uk addresses?

many thanks

One domain name can only resolve to one IP address (though many domain names may resolve to one IP).

If someone else has changed the Domain Name Servers to point to an IP address different to the one your server uses then you will no longer be found when people send emails.

Where do you end up if you visit www. whatever .org.uk?

many thanks for the replies - I'll check out the links. The 'whatever.org' was made up.
