    Hi all,

    I wish to have an entry for each new domain as mail.domain.tld for its MX server. The mail server is running on the same machine as ispconfig. Should I first create an a name or a c name and then point the mx record to it?

    You must create an A record, a CNAME does not work for an MX record!
    Create the A record mail.domain.tld, and then the MX record domain.tld -> mail.domain.tld.
    Also have a look here:
