    I managed to get the ispConfig all up and running.
    However I have an issue with email.

    The normail domains where mail is hosted on the ispConfig is fine.

    However I have one email server that is very large load so I run a dedicated mail server.
    I have the following in the DNS -

    A Record
    IP-Adresse Hostname
    203.xxx.xxx.135 www
    203.xxx.xxx.133 ns1
    203.xxx.xxx.134 ns2
    203.xxx.xxx.140 mail
    202.xxx.xxx.15 news

    Mailserver Hostname


    Under: Site -> Options
    I have Mailserver = External mailserver
    -- however it was originally set to internal (could this cause problems? Can I change later)


    In co-domains tab I have
    IP Hostname Domain
    203.xxx.xxx.135 xxxxxx.com.au
    When I click the IP i get another menu
    I click the options tab and select "External mailserver"

    However it appears the ispConfig is still trying to send/authenticate mail against its own mail server for this domain, not the external one.

    Originally I setup the domain with local email, then changed it to external.
    Is this causing a problem?
    The DNS is a replica of what I had on my old BIND server.

    Any help is appreciated...

    Is the domian still listed in /etc(postfix/local-host-names ? Please check again that you have set the website and all co-domains of this website to external mailserver.

    Hmm, i have the same problem, added a site for which we dont do the mail,

    set it to 'external server' but it still apears in local-host-name

    while an other domain has to mail a lot to the above mentioned but this doenst work, postfix tries to deliver the mail locally :(
