Thumbs down Mx Big Error !!!

I found a big mistake when you create the domain zone !!! you create this:

A record
XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX www.mydomain.com

MX record
www.mywebserver.com www


This is wrong !!! if you do that:

1.- No email will be served to this server !! if you send a mail to john@mydomain.com its rejected couse there are no MX for mydomain.com !! you must send emails to john@www.mydomain.com !!!
2.- No client want to see their provider hostname on their MX record


How can i fix it?!?!?!!!

There is no error or bug at all. Go to the ISPConfig DNS-Manager and have a look at the SOA for your domain, I'am pretty sure that there is "www" in the hostname field of the MX record. Remove it and hit save

Does your website in DNS-Manager has a co-domain with empty host and you checked the create MX option in the settings of the co-domain?

2) I know some providers that needs hostanmes in MX records.
