You might note as I did when you install server 2 ISPConfig you get this at the end of the install if you are working with a single domain name:
Install ISPConfig Web-Interface (y,n) [y]: n
no crontab for root
no crontab for getmail
* Restarting web server apache2
... waiting . ...done.
I do not yet 100% understand why this is but I am thinking it is because the ISPConfig crontab daily script makes a round of all servers in the multiserver setup and then mails results to root on the primary server - it is in this way that all administration takes place on the primary server.
I have the following zones on server1.example.com
and on server2.example.com
in this scenario, mail is obviously configured for the domain name on server1.example.com.
