Default ISPConfig 3rc2 Dedicated Mail Server Setup

I have searched and played around for a few days and am stuck. I have 2 ISPConfig 3rc2 servers setup. One is my webserver and the other is my dns/mail server. DNS works fine as does my webserver. I cannot figure out how to get the mail server setup. I am using Ubuntu 8.04 LTS for the DNS/Email server and Debian 5.0 for the webserver. I am currently hosting 6 domains.

Any help to assist me in properly setting up the mail server will be greatly appreciated.

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

Hi Till,

I installed my mail server as directed in this document: http://www.ispconfig.org/docs/INSTALL_UBUNTU_8.04.txt (I am running 8.04 on the mail server).

I think my issues are with the settings in ISPConfig control panel. What should I add in the settings on the mail server for exampledomain.org and what should be set in the settings on webserver for exampledomain.org?

On the mailserver I have added the domain, site and MX record. When I check the mailbox traffic, all the accounts say they had 1KB of traffic.

Thank you for your help.
