    I am new to server stuff and don't have much experience.
    I have a server and a domain, created A records successfully in ISPConfig 3.
    However, I can't make MX record work. I check via "dig MX " and nothing shows up.
    What should I type into MX record?

    You missed adding "" in the name field of the MX record.

    MX record shows the mail server FQDN for the domain. Test it with command
    $ host has address mail is handled by 10
    Your MX record name is empty. Name should be the domain name, and data should be the FQDN of the mail server host.
    $ host has address
