You must create an A record for server1.webpapagedirect.co.za.

Code:
dig webpapagedirect.co.za
shows that ns0.coza.net.za is the authoritative nameserver for your domain. That's where you must create the DNS records.

Put ehs.org.za at the end of /etc/postfix/local-host-names (where it says that you can make changes there) and restart Postfix.

Which POP3 server do you use? Please post the output of
Code:
netstat -tap
Is Maildir enabled or disabled under Management -> Server -> Settings -> Email (I guess you have installed ISPConfig)?

That's strange because all 3 FQDNs (zululand-adventures.com, pop3.zululand-adventures.com and pop3.webpagedirect.co.za) point to the same IP address. Do you see anything in the mail log about this?
