Did you ever try to send or receive e-mails only to get a bounced back message that it was undeliverable? There are many possible reasons for this but one of them, may be your company’s Domain Name System (DNS) entries. Good communication is key to the survival and growth of a company and e-mail is an essential tool in today’s business communications.

Your servers and workstations communicate with each other and systems outside your company through Internet Protocol (IP) addresses which are translated to names. IP addresses are often assigned to workstations by your Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server which helps prevent duplicate IPs conflicts on your network. Internally they may use Windows Internet Names Service (WINS) and Domain Name Services.

Most companies employ both an internal Domain Name Servers as well as external DNS servers which your clients and vendors rely on to communicate with your organization. Proper DNS entries allow browsing to your web server as well as your Mail Exchange record (MX record).   Your MX record entry assists in allowing proper e-mail resolution to your mail server. Your Sender Policy Framework record (SPF record) assists in allowing you to send e-mails to companies employing antispam measures.
