Hi everyone,

i set up the server and the 2-way option already. It works very good. But i dont get the email to sms thing to run.
i made a ddns subdomain.servehttp.com which is same as my IP. But what does host.domain.com and sms.domain.com in the manual mean? Does someone have a good and short manual to setup the email to sms?
Thanks

Hi Ralf,

"sms.domain.name" would refer to a DNS "MX" (mail exchange) record.

"host.domain.name" is a DNS "A" or "CNAME" record.

"sms.domain.name" and "host.domain.name" can be the same values ... but in this case, you still need to have a DNS "MX" record that points to the host record, even if the name is the same.
