    As far as i know, ISPConfig only supports sendmail and Postfix.

    It is possible to make use of an external mailserver.
    You can do this via the option "External Mailserver" within ISPConfig.

    No, ISPConfig doesn't track the traffic of external servers.

    ok I know this is not 100% related but this was the closest post to my question.

    I have a customer for whom I want to design/set up a small site. his hsting is not the best, so he gave me his login credentials, and I set up an a-record for his domain to point to my server for testing purposes. all worked fine, except that when I want to email him from my server, the mail does not get delivered because ispcfg thinks my server is also responsible for his emails. so I selected: external mailserver for this site but still, I get a delivery failure. does this need more time to work or do I need to make some other changes too?

    in his control panel (btw. his host is strato) I checked that the standard strato mailservers are responsible for his MX records (thata a direct translation of their menu)

    can someone walk me through concerning what I could have done wrong?

    Did you select external mailserver also for all Co-Domains?

    I did not know I could set that option also for codomains. just found that option, set it and that did the trick. THX :)
