.me domain

  • arkas


    i want to add  "example.me" domain to my mailserver, but postfixadmin says that this domain isn`t valid because of the domain extension.

    What can I do?

    Thanks for help.

    Either use a different domain - example.com,example.net etc
    or edit config.inc.php and look for the option


    And set it to be 'NO' instead of 'YES'.

    I would have done if such a domain would have been free! But that was no longer the case.

    Does this mean anything? Because I own this domain, and it also runs on my own nameservers.

    Really? I'd be surprised if you could register/buy example.me - after all, if I do a whois lookup on it. it comes back with stuff like :

    Your best bet is to edit config.inc.php and change the value for emailcheck_resolve_domain so it's set to NO.

  • Is this domain resolvable using your nameserver? I'd guess not, and this already explains your problem ;-) (The .me extension shouldn't hurt.)

    If you want to disable the nameserver check, see FAQ.TXT in the postfixadmin documentation.

    BTW: Which version are you using? 2.3.3 (and IIRC all 2.3.x versions) display a detailed error message.

    I set $CONF to NO.

    The reason was a problem with the nameserver.
