Hello,

In order to know to what IP address MDaemon must connect in order to send an email to a receiving, it must first query a DNS server to obtain the IP address of that receiving server.

According to MXToolbox.com, the host name which you are attempting to look (" smtp.strato.de ") up has only an IPv4 address (" 81.169.145.133 ")



Is the DNS server you are querying capable of returning IPv4 addresses?

Does the issue you describe occur if you configure your copy of MDaemon to use a different DNS server/servers?

From the MDaemon online "Help" file:



DNS Servers

    Use Windows DNS servers
    When this option is selected, MDaemon will use all DNS servers found within your Windows TCP/IP configuration. MDaemon will try each DNS server once per lookup operation and in sequence until it exhausts the complete list of DNS servers or finds the first one that works. If you include additional DNS servers in the Manually configured DNS Servers option below, MDaemon will try those servers as well. Finally, at startup the System log will display each DNS server and indicate its source (i.e. manually configured or taken from Windows).


    Reload DNS server hourly
    Check this box if you wish to reload the DNS server every hour. This is disabled by default.


    Manually configured DNS servers
    MDaemon will use all DNS servers specified here when performing DNS lookups. MDaemon will try each server once per lookup operation and in sequence until it exhausts the complete list of DNS servers or finds the first one that works. If you enable the Use Windows DNS servers option above, MDaemon will also query all DNS servers found within your Windows TCP/IP configuration. Finally, at startup the System log will display each DNS server and indicate its source (i.e. manually configured or taken from Windows).




If you disable the option "Use Windows DNS servers", remove all of the manual entries from the DNS server list, and manually enter the IP address/addresses of the DNS server/servers of your ISP, does the issue you describe still occur?

If you disable the option "Use Windows DNS servers", remove all of the manual entries from the DNS server list, and manually enter the IP address/addresses of one of the free public DNS servers listed below, does the issue you describe still occur?
