Default DNS zones for mail exchange, subdomain, smtp and pop3

Hi all,
I've just installed isp config on a fedora core 6 mac mini server. all works without problem, but i've some issue with dns and mail services.
Under dns setting i've specificated the name of my name server and enabled default mx creation.
When i add a domain, like: host: www domain: test.com, i enable both create dns and dns-mx, but in the zone file, i can read only:

www MX 10 ns.test.com

but by selecting default mx creation i should have:

MX 10 ns.test.com
www MC 10 ns.2bite.net

mail A server_ip

Is this a bug or a configuration problem of my server ? After istalling isp config I've changed the ip, but i've changed all the configuration file found.

Also,
i need to have some domain with name@domain.com email and dome other subdomain with mail@subdom.domain.com email, how can i do ?



Thanks

Please go to the Co-Domains tab and select test.com (without www), and then enable Default MX for test.com, too. Please remember: www.test.com != test.com. Up to now, you created an MX record for www.test.com, not for trst.com, and that's what you have in your zone file, so everything is ok.

If subdom.domain.com should point to the domain.com web site, then you can add subdom.domain.com as a Co-Domain to the domain.com web site, and you will automatically have email addresses such as mail@domain.com and mail@subdom.domain.com.

If subdom.domain.com and domain.com are different web sites, simply create a new web site for subdom.domain.com in ISPConfig and then create email accounts for it.

Just done, it will create

MX 10 mail.test.com

but not

mail A ip_address

Did you enable Default MX under Management -> Server -> Settings -> DNS?
