I'm just wondering how can I set up a subdomain mail.mysite.com to catch all the mail coming to mysite.com. The domain and its subdomain are in different boxes (ISPConfig is handling the subdomain).

My idea was to create in ISPConfig the domain mail.mysite.com, but then the mail addresses are user@mail.mysite.com, and I want them user@mysite.com, any idea where to find more information about this?

Add a co-domain "mysite.com" to the website "mail.mysite.com", then all email for user@mysite.com and user@mail.mysite.com come into the users mailbox.

OK, what about the webmail?, users can log in with user@domain.com?

And what about DNS? Should I create an A record pointint to the IP address of domain.com box, another A record pointing to the IP address of mail.domain.com and an MX record pointing to mail.domain.com?

yes.

A Records for domain.com and mail.domain.com
MX Record (with an empty host field) pointing to mail.domain.com

You want to use https://mail.damdakikedi.com:81/webmail? Just put ServerName mail.damdakikedi.com into /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and restart ISPconfig: /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart
