    Hi guys :

    I want to set up a mail server next to my current server. An email server was added to the master server as per your site's instructions. But when I create a new email it is still added to the same old server.
    instruction here :

    my servers are centos , what problem here ? need any other stage for this ?

    What does the above mean?
    Is the question about when you send an e-mail, it goes to the wrong server?
    If you have Roundcube Webmail installed on the new server, try signing in to Roundcube and send an e-mail to yourself. It that mail arrives, the web server is set up correctly.
    If e-mail sent from the outside ends up in the wrong server, then most likely the MX record still points to the wrong place. Check for example with command host what the MX record is.
    host thedomain.tld
    where thedomain.tld is the part of e-mail address after the @-sign.

    So you have now two e-mail servers?
    My understanding of ISPConfig is, that you can not choose for individual e-mail boxes on which server it goes. But you can create a new e-mail domain in ISPConfig, and assing that to the e-mail server you want. This should work assuming you have in ISPConfig Panel in System and Server Services marked also the new host as mailserver.
    If you want to move existing e-mail domain from old server to new, I am not sure if there is an easy way. You can change the domain to the other mailserver, but I assume this does not transfer the mailboxes and their contents, you would need to do that manually.
    In addition to that, what I wrote in #2 about the MX record still goes. And you have to set up PTR record also so sending e-mail works.

    There are lots of threads on this forum about migrating mailboxes from host to host. Try Internet Search engines with
    Code: migrate mailboxes
