Gives quick and complete insight in mail server problems

What do you like best?

Operating a mailserver can be nuisance. Especially when things are not working it is often a struggle to find the exact reason. Sometimes problems are with a single customer and others have no issues at all. Other issues like rejected mail due to a blacklisted server are hard to explain to users who just want to mail to that one specific person but can't because their server is rejecting yours.

With the tools provided by MXToolbox you can get a quick checkup on the server and the environment. When it's blacklisted you get an overview of all the relevant lists. It also monitors it so the admin gets an early alert.

Another plus is that MXtoolbox is not just limited to MX stuff but knows enough and has the tools to get a complete picture for all things relevant to successfully send and receive mail.

What do you dislike?

For the non-technical user there is no easy interface for some quick checks. You really need to know your acronyms and have enough technical knowledge to use the tools effectively.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MXToolbox monitors our mailservers and those of customers and alerts the admin in case of troubles. The early warning and the historical overview are great tools.

Great time saver and productivity enhancer for those needing to diagnose dns issues

What do you like best?

Simple to use tools for diagnosing dns and related domain/web networking issues. It's free to use and provides additional functionality when creating a free account.

What do you dislike?

The tools are all separated on the site and it would be nice to have an all-in-one dashboard view of the tools and analysis results.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't be afraid to explore all the features and read up on any technical terms you aren't familiar with to take full advantage of the toolset.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was migrating DNS entries from one service (registrar) to another (cdn) and I needed to ensure the information I was entering was correct. I also needed to diagnose some issues with my configuration quickly to ensure there was no downtime in my site.

What Other IT Infrastructure solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

One of my favorite, easy and lightweight DNS and other diagnostics tool

What do you like best?

Very much lightweight, DNS, MX or Whois lookup tool in one place, no need to reload or visit other pages.

Easy to identify blacklists for domains and ip addresses.

Although, SMTP diagnostics, Domain Health, IP address checker, Password Generator, Ping and Monitoring services available within one place.

More then 39 diagnostics/ DNS Management/ SMTP or Blacklist checking tools available for use. That's why i don't have to look for another tools to use for network and domain managements.

What do you dislike?

Free features has limitations. 1 monitoring for one account for free accounts. that's why needed separate accounts for several domains. Maybe that would be great if increase the account limits.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for one tool that could handle several Network monitoring and Domain / DNS or other checking features, you could try the MXToolbox. They have most of the monitoring and tracing products that will help you to identify your DNS related issues very well.

So, try MXToolbox for all in one diagnostics tool for you / your company.

A Webmaster's Dream Come True

What do you like best?

My favorite part of using MXToolbox is our ability to check in on MX Records and A Records after we make changes to the DNS of a website we are launching. It allows us to make sure that we have pointed everything over exactly as we should.

What do you dislike?

I wish that there was a tool to easily look at past DNS Zone History easily and that does not seem to be there.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try for when yo are trying to look up MX Records or DNS info on a domain name.
