Default Confused about MX records

Only if you check the "Default MX" checkbox. You must check this for every domain/subdomain that you want to receive emails for. If you create a web site www.example.com and check "Default MX", then an MX record will be created for www.example.com, allowing to receive emails for user@www.example.com. If you want to have an MX record for example.com, go to the Co-Domains tab and check "Default MX" for the Co-Domain example.com.

But it might be easier not to use the "Default MX" checkboxes and create your MX records in the DNS Manager. That's how I do it. I always create an A record like mail.example.com, and then an MX record for example.com pointing to mail.example.com.

You must use the IP address you see for eth0 when you run
Code:
ifconfig
