    Ispconfig appears to be appending to the end of the MX record how do I prevent this if I want to use a non ISPCONFIG MX?

    Should be:

    Disregard I just figured it out. For anyone else when adding the MX record make sure you use a trailing . on the Mailserver hostname

    Not ISPConfig is appending the zone name, BIND is appending it as any fully qualified domain name in BIND DNS server has to end with a dot. If you miss adding a dot, then BIND treats it as a subdomain of the zone. So it's actually not ISPConfig specific at all, it applies to any DNS server.
