Default ISPConfig won't host website but not mail

OK, let me explain!

I have a domain I've just started to host for a friend.

His website will be hosted on one of my ISPConfig boxes. His mail, however, needs to go direct to his exchange server, via the MX record. (There is a backup MX record in place so should all be fine).

I can't seem to find a way to create a virtual host for web, without it sticking an annoying entry in /etc/postfix/local-host-names for it as well, and creating an e-mail address for the website user. Oh - my ISPConfig box is hosting primary DNS too.

It's usually very helpful, but in this case, it actually means I can't do what I want!

Anyone know of a workaround? I had thought of creating the website under a dummy name, and putting ServerAlias directives in the "Apache Directives" area of the host config, which would work, but surely there's a better way?

Thanks in advance,
