What's the output of
Code:
dig ns yourdomain.com
? That shows you what nameservers are authoritative for your domain, and that's where you must create/modify your DNS records.

answer

domain.com. 172800 in ns server1.domain2.com.
domain.com. 172800 in ns server1.domain2.com.


i have tried swapping the mailserver on the mx records from mail.domain.com with server1.domain2.com but it still dont work, but the dns records that im changing are on that server

i installed ispconfig a while back and i got it working but i cant remember what i did!
