Send email to domain with MX record on other server?
 
I've been trying for some days now, but till now with no luck.

In ISPconfig I've got a domain www.somename.com (lets call this server server_1).
The website and DNS is running on this ISPconfig server (server_1), but the email for that domain is on an other server (lets call it server_2)

Within ISPconfig (server 1) I've created the domain www.somename.com.
For the domain www.somename.com I've enabled Create DNS.
I've also created an user & email as I needed it to FTP to the site.
I also set the Mailserver (under the tab options) to External Mailserver.

In the DNS for domainname.com I've setthe MX record to an A record that points to the server that is used for mail.

Problem.
When I email with a user account that does run on the ISPconfig (server_1) to somename.com, the mail will not go to server_2 (it get an error saying "Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients. Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table"
(note that this is only when I use an email account that is on server_1)

Looking at /etc/postfix/local-host-names it does still show somename.com
Should the option "External Mailserver" not remove this from the local-host-names file?

When I use an account that is NOT running op server_1, mail (gmail, hotmail etc... ) all is working fine for somename.com

Anyone here who might know what is going on?

Please set the co-domain somename.com of the website www.somename.com to external mailserver too in the options of the co-domain.
