RE: Setting up mail with external dns
I use theese entries - very simple...
Code:
@... SOA...

  1D IN NS ns1.external....
  1D IN NS ns2.external....
  1D IN MX 10 <ispcp-server-hostname>.
  1D IN TXT "v=spf1 a mx a:<ispcp-server-hostname> ~all"
  1D IN A <ispcp-server-ip>

www 1D IN CNAME <ispcp-server-hostname>.
mail   1D IN CNAME <ispcp-server-hostname>.
*      1D IN CNAME <ispcp-server-hostname>.

And disable bind on ispcp (also set bind to "no" in the ispcp config)

Thanks for the reply.

By disabling bind on ISPCP I guess you mean just stopping the service on the server (?) Also in ispcp.conf I didn't find any relevant bind entry to set to "no". Only:

#
# BIND data
#
BIND_CONF_FILE = /etc/bind/named.conf
BIND_DB_DIR = /var/cache/bind
SECONDARY_DNS =

CMD_NAMED = no


otherwise the bind service will be started some time by ispcp...
