    I know there has to be something here somewhere. Could someone point out the doc that explains mx record creation? I have six of my own sites that I created and I want them to all point to one mailserver.


    all point to

    What's the easiest way to do this with ISPconfig? It shouldn't be a problem for the mailserver right? That just goes of username and password right? Can I put "@" in the hostname field and "" in the mailserver field?

    You can create MX records in the ISPConfig DNS-Manager, just open the primary record of your domain and add a MX record, leave the hostname field empty and add your mailserver name in the mailserver field.

    Lets say you want to have a email address like [email protected] or [email protected], then you need a mx for e.g. and not In this case you will have to put "uk" in the hostname field.
