Mhh, maybe some prior info.
I run my webs via afraid. So I do not need a DNS on my site atm. So I set DNS/Bind in ispmanager to off.
I do seem to have entries in the DNS part of ispconfig, but I figured that is no concern since bind isn't running ?
the server1.example.com was changed allready to server1.idefix.lan, but that is a local name, it shouldn't be visible on the outside of the web.
So the current error I see when sending LOCAL email from one of my webclients to another is also reflecting server1.idefix.lan:

I added the server1.idefix.lan in my hosts:
# IP-Address Full-Qualified-Hostname Short-Hostname
# special IPv6 addresses
::1 localhost ipv6-localhost ipv6-loopback
127.0.0.2 idefix.lan idefix
192.168.1.76 idefix.lan idefix
I still get the error in sending email
mails are send, but not received.
as for the A record ?? isn't that needed in DNS setup only ? and since idefix.lan is not an outside known name, should it be in an A record still??
Or is it that you mean that the name I give to my local machine, should be one that IS visible in a real resolving internet name ?
The strange thing is that everthing did work after install, it just suddenly stopped working, and I have no clue why.
Just ask me for all logs.setups and even access to my box. I desperatly need to have this working and if possible, understand what I'm doing
