    hi all

    i installed ispconfig a week or so ago and i thought the mail was working but it aint i cant receive mail, i tried a few things and it work once or twice then stop again, but looking up my mx records its never found them even though i have done this:

    A record

    ip address hostname

    internal ip
    external ip mail


    hostname target



    mailserver hostname

    What's the output of
    dig ns
    ? That shows you what nameservers are authoritative for your domain, and that's where you must create/modify your DNS records.
