Having trouble receiving or sending emails? Are your emails ending up in the receiver’s junk/spam folder? Did you know, your email server’s IP could be blacklisted? The following steps will help you check your domain name / email server’s health.

Step 1: Visit http://www.mxtoolbox.com. MX Toolbox is a MX Lookup Tool that lets you check your DNS records (MX, A, Nameserver,etc).

Step 2: Enter your domain name in the text box and click on the ‘Lookup’ button. This will list the email server’s details. Depending on your email server’s settings, you might have one or more IP Addresses in the list.

    Well no. MXToolbox.com doesn’t show if you’re banned with google. It shows a whole lot but, I’m banned from Google and no one else. I guess Google is the strictest of them.

    I’ve requested getting off their list but no luck so far.
