DNS Trouble

    Hello everyone.

    Ive just installed 2 debian etch servers with ispconfig. Everything went all right and i am able to run all task avabible on the web admin site.

    But iam having some trouble. Iam using ispconfig to configure 1 domain. Since i will be using an external webserver and mailserver i will just use the dns manager part. Ive created an master zone for my domain where i point domain ip to my external webserver.

    Ive also created an alias for the external webserver and it works fine. When i try to resolv the host everything works like it should. Both domainname and alias.

    To the trouble. Ive created an a record for my mailserver and then created an mx pointer which points to my newly created A record. But those never start to work. When i use a dns query tool it says that no MX or A record is registred exept the one for the domain. A record =example.com

    Since iam a windows administrator my knowledge of bind9 is terrible but the zone file looks like this.

    NS ns1.example.com. ; Inet Address of name server 1
    NS ns2.example.com. ; Inet Address of name server 2

    mail.example.com MX 10 mail.example.com.

    example.com. A
    mail.example.com A

    www CNAME example.com.


    In my eyes, this looks like a working config, but like ive said, this is for sure not a bug, just badly configured by me.

    "Ive replaced the real domainname with example;) ."

    Any suggestions where i did wrong?

    This is wrong. It means that you've created an MX record for email addresses like
    [email protected].

    What you want is either
    example.com[B][COLOR="Red"].[/COLOR][/B] MX 10 mail.example.com.
     MX 10 mail.example.com.
