ok. The problem is now fixed.
My hunch was right. The main domain I was testing with has a corrupt MX record with my Nameparking service 123-reg.co.uk

#dig mydomain.com mx

mydomain.com. 4854 IN MX 10 mail.mydomain.com.mydomain.com.

;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
mydomain.com. 4854 IN NS ns2.hosteurope.com.
mydomain.com. 4854 IN NS ns.hosteurope.com.

;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:
ns.hosteurope.com. 140273 IN A IP address

Absolutely unbelievable...
Has this ever happened to anyone else?
and if I install ISP config do I run my own nameservers and DNS so this problem will never happen again??

Falco..if you fancy doing an install on my centos4.4 server please pm me. I cant see it in the list on the site for ispconfig. thanks

And yes...the mx record is set correctly with a full stop at the end.

Like mail.mydomain.com.
