    • Debian 10

    • Nginx
    We are here of course a bit at the border between the server and the setting of the DNS zones. I can not find anything specific in the documentation.
    I declared a my-site.tld mail domain per site my-site.tld.
    How to set the e-mail on ISPConfig and what value to put in the MX DNS zone (and possibly CNAME and others ?) to be able to receive and send the messages from a messaging software, for example Thunderbird?

    Add an email domain in ISPConfig, add a mailbox in ISPConfig, point the MX record in DNS to your server.

    Thank you, Till. Your answer allowed me to find the cause of the malfunction.
    There was a transfer bug in the DNS zone template provided by the host. The CNAME fields returned to their shared hosting.
