Default how to host emails on different server

Hi there,

at the moment i am hosting the website on server a and emails on server b. sever a has the isp configuration. I created an account for a hosted domain i.e. any@test.com . Now because test.com is listed under local-host-names on server a the recipient is always rejected. This recipient lies on server b. In order to overcome this i have commented out the entries in local-host-names test.com and www.test.com and it works.

My question is though, is this the best way to do as the configuration files states #### MAKE MANUAL ENTRIES BELOW THIS LINE! #### . Will this setting be re-enabled after a configuration update ?

Thank you very much

Do not edit the file local-host-names manually, instaed you set mailserver to external in the website and co-domain settings in ispconfig.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
