    Hi All,

    I have strange problem on one of my servers running Debian sarge and ispconfig 2.2.12.
    The problem is that some of the domains just change the option "Mailserver:" "AUTOMATIC" :eek: I mean - that i have setuped every domain to use "Local Mailserver" but after inspecting the situation i find some of the domains set up to "External Mailserver" and after changing it back to "Local Mailserver" the next day the option is again set up to "External Mailserver" :eek:

    Has anybody some idea whats going on?

    another Q: can i somehow setup ALL of the domains to "Local Mailserver" for example from shell or with mysql query... because now i need to go through every domain via the webUI which is very time consuming domains are > 400 ....

    You could use the mysql query
    set domain_local_mailserver='1' in isp_isp_domain
    to change the values and then
    set status='u' in isp_isp_web
    to make ISPConfig aware of the change. (only needed for the table isp_isp_domain)

    You might have to make a change - doesn't matter what - in the Control Panel to initiate the update.

    Thanks for the reply.

    What do you actually mean with:

    Just change something and click OK ?!

    Exactly, Even just something minor. This will trigger the scripts that build the config files.

    Sounds almost too easy to be true. ;-)

    You guys could always put in a feature request to make it more difficult, but they may skip that one.... :D :D :D

    Which ISPConfig version do you use? I guess you use the dev versions and do not have proper MX records for your domains. Sine ISPConfig 2.3.2, ISPConfig checks for manipulations in the mailserevr, e.g. poeple trying to catch mails for google.com on your server and disables the mail receiving for these accounts.

    Please setup proper MX records for your domains that point to your server.
