    hello all,
    Is it possible to config only one of my domain in ispconfig to use external mail server ?! I set mail server to external in that domain and co-domain settings and then create a MX record that points to external mail server.But it does not work. I use dig tools and it return correct answer but it seems that ispconfig should remove my domain name form "/etc/postfix/local-host-names".because when i try to mail from other domains to that domain(with external mail server) it(postifx) try to deliver it locally....
    Any Idea?!
    TNX

    Yes. Just select "External Mailserver" for the domain in question. If it's a Co-Domain, you can find that setting on the Co-Domains tab > select Co-Domain > Options.
    For the web site's main domain it's on the Options tab of the web site.

    Do you use that domain as the hostname for the server? Do you see it somewhere in /etc/postfix/main.cf or /etc/mailname?

    Do you see the domain in the output of
    Code:

    Do you see that domain in /etc/postfix/main.cf or any of the file included in main.cf?

    I have many subdomains(x.domain.com,y.domain.com,...) of that domain (domain.com) in local-host-names file but no in main.cf.
    can't I exclude domain.com manually??!!

    But domain.com itself is not listed anywhere?
