Red face MX is host name, not IP

when i ran domain test in dnsstuff it said.
MX is Host Name, not IP
ERROR: You have one or more MX record(s) that contain an IP address. This is not valid. A fully RFC-compliant mailserver will not be able to send you mail (although some mail servers will, due to the TCP/IP functions that they use). The problem MX records are:

initially i had mx record pointing to my IP but i changed that yesterday.

my configuration at the domain registrar's end
A record

A record



MX record

configurations in ISPconfig-managemnt-server settings
hostname : www
domain : mydomain.com

DNS servers : my ISP DNS servers
(prefer to use ISP DNS and not ISPconfig DNS servers)

port forwarding enabled for all DNS,SMTP,POP3...

then i created www.mydomain.com site in isp manager-new site
hostname : www
domain : mydomain.com

do i have to enable DNS & MX record options in that
How do i fix the MX issue

It may take up to 48- 72 hours until your change in DNS is recognized by all DNS cacching servers, sou you might have to wait a bit longer.

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