    For some reason, any DNS zone managed by ISPConfing does not expose it's MX records.

    For example: (both of the DNS IP's are from the same single ISPConfig server).

    While I have defined for the MX record

    Any idea what might prevent from ISPConfig to show the MX records?

    Is your server's IP address? What's in the zone file?

    Yes, this is the IP address of the server. Below are the contents of the zone file:

    $TTL 86400
    @ IN SOA (
    2006120401 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
    28800 ; refresh, seconds
    7200 ; retry, seconds
    604800 ; expire, seconds
    86400 ) ; minimum, seconds

    NS ; Inet Address of name server 1
    NS ; Inet Address of name server 2

    mail MX 10 A
    www A
    mail A
    @ A

    It seems to happen with all the domains managed by ISPConfig DNS. Perhaps it due to the instaleld local mail server? Or there some record might be missing?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, I'm not sure if the nameserver entries themselves are oke. Why do you use www..... for both nameservers? I would add two dns entries with e.g. ns0 and ns1 to seperate these from your website.

    Thanks Falko, this resolved the problem :).

    I'll check why the NS are begning with www, because the real NS are indeed begin with ns1 and ns2. This what btw the dnsstuff traversal shows as well: [] []
