No..I didn't use a glue record
I basically shut down a working server and built this one exactly how I built teh working server that didn't have any of these issues.
I have built at least 15 servers based completely on your how to build a perfect server and they all worked. Now, i will say that this is the first time to use this version of ISPConfig. 2.2.35.
Anyway, I decided that I like pain so I rebuilt the entire server last night..and the issue is still present on this new build. Like I said, emails do move across...i installed an smf forum, created an account and then click forgot password and it comes across. I send out messages as admin of the smf site and they come across. I create accounts and they all work so I just don't know.
