'coldevil.com' does not look like a valid DNS server :? Are you really sure that is ok?
Did you read the help?
Did you click the 'Test' button and enter an email address?
Do you get a response from the DNS server?

You must enter the IP address or hostname of a DNS server.
Your ISP usually provides you access to a DNS server or you can search on the Internet for an open DNS server.

Loopia provide me with a DNS address ”coldevil.com”
And the Server address to the Loopia server is “http://dns.loopia.se/XDynDNSServer/XDynDNS.php
When I use the Server address the email server tells me “unable to resolve”

What have I done wrong? :cry:

A DNS address is not the same as a DNS server.
Please contact your ISP and ask for the primary DNS server.

From the help file:
The domain name system (DNS) enables each machine connected on the Internet to be recognized by a domain name. Every computer on the Internet has a unique IP (Internet protocol) address which consists of a string of numbers. Since the IP addresses can be difficult to remember, the DNS allows a familiar string of letters (the "domain name") to be used instead of the IP address. So instead of typing the IP address' you can type, for example, "www.microsoft.com."

Quick 'n Easy Mail Server needs a valid DNS server address to request to matching server for a specific email address, so it can deliver the messages for this address to the right mail server. Usually your ISP provides a DNS server IP address which you can use for this purpose.

Ok I have found the DNS Server now 195.54.122.204 or 195.54.122.200
The company support page, and i translated the text here:

What are Bredbandsbolagets DNS-servers?
195.54.122.200 and 195.54.122.204.
--------------
Now It look like this:

Domains:
- Domain
-- contact

Relay:
- General
-- Replay messages (X)
-- Server Hostname: coldevil.com
-- DNS Server: 195.54.122.204
-- Max. recipients 0

User Accounts:
-User Accounts
--Username: contact
--Password: ************
--Fullname: contact@coldevil.com

--------------

But when I send and receive mails they get placed in the badmail dir.

'coldevil.com' doesn't seem to have a MX record for mail!

Please check out this tool:
http://www.mxtoolbox.com/index.aspx
and you will learn that coldevil.com doesn't work there either, so this is not directly related to the mail server.

Please contact your domain provider and update the MX record so that it points to your computer, the one where your mail server is running on.

Ok the MX record is fixed and the DNS is fixed.
But the e-mails now get stock in the queue and the program is resending them.

That is probably because you are sending the mail to yourself?
Did you add the coldevil.com to your domains in the 'Domains' tab?
