    Hello,

    I have a server with let's say the name example.com

    I have created a DNS record after adding the site in ISPConfig 3 that looks like this:

    A ns1 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    A www xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    A mail xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    A ns2 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    A example.com xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    MX example.com mail.example.com
    ns ns1 ns1.example.com
    ns ns2 ns2.example.com

    my hosts looks like this:

    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ns1.example.com example
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ns2.example.com example
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx example.com example
    127.0.0.2 example.com example

    everything works ok except the e-mail. I cannot recieve e-mails but i can send them ok.

    When i use pingability.com it tells me that there is no MX and/or A record for example.com defined. Do you guys know why? Did i miss something in the configuration of the DNS in ISPConfig?

    One more thing if I put the MX record like this: MX <nothinghere> example.com it shows me that now there is an MX record but it looks like this
    example.com.example.com.

    Thanks.

    You missed the dots:

    Code:
    A ns1 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    A www xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    A mail xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    A ns2 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    A example.com[B][COLOR="Red"].[/COLOR][/B] xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    MX example.com[B][COLOR="Red"].[/COLOR][/B] mail.example.com[B][COLOR="Red"].[/COLOR][/B]
    ns ns1 ns1.example.com[B][COLOR="Red"].[/COLOR][/B]
    ns ns2 ns2.example.com[B][COLOR="Red"].[/COLOR][/B]
