Can't receive emails postfix/dovecot and other doubts
 
Hi people, I'm new in the community. I installed a CentOS 5.6 with ISPConfig3 following the Perfect Setup Guide. I'm having some troubles and doubts.

1st: I setted up the email service w/postfix+dovecot and I can receive mails from localhost in all domains (I configured more than 1 domains). So in the main domain (that have dns created in goddady like ns1.mydomain.com) I can receive mail from outside (gmail by example) but can't receive from outside in my others domains (ex. mydomain2.com). Any idea? I'm supecting of dns zones.
Should I create a dns zone for each domain with records like:
Zone 1: mail.mydomain.com
Zone 2: mail.mydomain3.com
Zone 3: [...] ?
Or just a main zone with my primary domain?

2nd: When I setup a new site I select Auto-Subdomain: www for catch both option (with and whitout www prefix)but nothing... www. doesn't work. I'm pretty lost at this point.

3rd: I buyed a VPS and I don't have a traditional fstab (just none / none defaults) and off course quota not work... at least installed like the guide way. How do you manage HD quotas?

Ok... too much for now.
I 'll appreciate some help!

Regards.

Please check if your MX records point to the correct server. You can check that like this:
Code:

dig mx yourdomain.com

Do DNS records exist for www, and do they point to the correct server?
