    I have FC5 installed and ISPConfig running.

    My server name is www.domainmain.com.
    So, I have at GoDaddy, @, www, mail all pointing to the IP address of my server. There is also an MX record on GoDaddy mail.domainmaster.com.

    Now, I have 5 sites created on my FC5 box and here is where I'm confused. When I look at each of the sites in the DNS Manager under Records, they all have the MX Record set to:

    www.domainmain.com and mail.domainmain.com

    On the GoDaddy site, under "Total DNS Control" there are MX Records that have:

    So, should the local ISPConfig records be changed to have mail.domainone.com where each domain will have its own mx record? Or should each domain be pointed to mail.domainmain.com?

    I hope that makes sence.

    BTW, I want to have GoDaddy handle all the DNS stuff if possible.

    Then you don't need ISPConfig's DNS Manager at all.

    If you want to run your own name servers, have a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/ispconfig_dns_godaddy
