Default 1 out of 9 domains not getting mail

I just rebuild my ISPConfig Server on new hardware and I have run into a wall. All 9 of my domains can send AND receive email except one. It can send ok but it will NOT receive. Messages are getting returned to the server with the error: The recipient's destination email system is unknown or invalid.

I have removed the site and DNS, restarted ISPConfig and re-added the site with the same results.

I am running Ubuntu Server 7.10 and the latest 2.X Stable ISPConfig build.

Suggestions?

Thanks!

Please make sure that the site www.domain.com has a co-domain domain.com with empty hostname.

That is correct - My co-domain has domain.com with an empty hostname.

Default Fixed - Problem with ISPConfig and DNS

Here is what ISPConfig created as the domains DNS MX record:
Code:
  MX      10 hostname.domain.com.
After I changed it to this it started receiving email:

Code:
mail.domain.com  IN  MX      10 mail.domain.com.
The reason the other domain were working is because I imported the dns records from an older version of ISPConfig from an older server. I think there is an issue with this version of ISPConfig and how it writes DNS Records - or an ISPConfig Setting I need to change so I dont have to manually enter all my records...

Thanks, and cheers!

There is no known issue with the dns manager. I guess you have the wrong hostname settings under management > server > settings. Make sure that the combination of hostname + domain listed there is really pointing to your server with a dns A-Record.

That is my hostname, and domain name, which is what is being put into DNS as the MX. but when I host multiple domains shouldnt the mx record be different for each domain? Or, should it be like this:

Management -> Server -> Settings:
Hostname: myname
Domain: domain.com

Then the mx records SHOULD read:

MX myname.domain.com

and NOT:

mail.domain2.com. IN MX mail.domain2.com.
and
mail.domain3.com. IN MX mail.domain3.com.
and
mail.domain4.com. IN MX mail.domain4.com.

ALL domains should have the MX pointing to the local hstname.domain.com?

If that is the case why doesnt it work until I change things and add the additional info in?

The MX record must be a domain name that points with a DNS A-Record to your server. It does not have to be mail.domain.com. Please craete a DNS A-Record for myname.domain.com pointing to the IP of your server and you will see that the MX records will work.
