    Instead of creating the record manually, you could have used ISPConfig's DNS Manager for this.

    Can you post the exact error message from /var/log/maillog?

    Why did you replace Postfix with Sendmail? Sendmail is a lot harder to manage than Postfix...

    You can try to set the virtusertable path to /etc/mail/virtusertable and the local-host-names path to /etc/mail/local-host-names in ISPConfig (Management > Server > Settings > Email).
    Change something afterwards in ISPConfig so that the new files get written.
