    when i ran domain test in dnsstuff it said.
    MX is Host Name, not IP
    ERROR: You have one or more MX record(s) that contain an IP address. This is not valid. A fully RFC-compliant mailserver will not be able to send you mail (although some mail servers will, due to the TCP/IP functions that they use). The problem MX records are:

    initially i had mx record pointing to my IP but i changed that yesterday.

    my configuration at the domain registrar's end
    A record

    A record



    MX record

    configurations in ISPconfig-managemnt-server settings
    hostname : www
    domain :

    DNS servers : my ISP DNS servers
    (prefer to use ISP DNS and not ISPconfig DNS servers)

    port forwarding enabled for all DNS,SMTP,POP3...

    then i created site in isp manager-new site
    hostname : www
    domain :

    do i have to enable DNS & MX record options in that
    How do i fix the MX issue

    It may take up to 48- 72 hours until your change in DNS is recognized by all DNS cacching servers, sou you might have to wait a bit longer.
