comment automatic MX entries for (almost) all hosts within a domain
the thing is, that while i understand the reasons why wildcards don't apply here (thanks for clarifying it, anyhow), it doesn't help answering my question. worse: most of the domains i administer have the same problem... so i figure that others might have this problem as well and there ought to be a simple solution for it

RFCs have a very clear distinction between should and must (and while technically nobody ever *enforces an RFC, they still use these words and insist that they are different). in any case, this aspect of your answer isn't really related to my question anyhow... (so sorry for being anal)

comment Nginx welcome page returns
what do you mean by "it appears to happen every time... if I reboot the instance, it does not cause the overwriting". does it happen every time or does it not happen on reboot?

comment automatic MX entries for (almost) all hosts within a domain
well, if i remember the RFC correctly, an MTA must try that A-record if there is no MX-record. that's exactly why i want to set the MX record for each A-record.

@Hihui if you want to have another solution to the same problem as asked before, then this is a duplicate. so what is the underlying problem you want to solve?

comment automatic MX entries for (almost) all hosts within a domain
@NickW i understand; i think should have avoided the use of "subdomains" in my question (i've updated the Q); i'm really talking about a single domain with multiple A/CNAME records; and i want the MX-record for each A/CNAME record to point to the same host

avoid using "subdomain" as it raises confusion (i'm talking about A-records within a domain; not subdomains); added *bad* example

comment automatic MX entries for (almost) all hosts within a domain
i did have a cursory glance, though i didn't see any benefit for my problem. i really try to avoid having to specify an explicit MX record for each A-record, whether this is in a single zone-file or in myriards of per-host snippets.

comment make logrotate to only rotate at service startup
i knew i forgot something about logrotate. copytruncate together with a forced rotation at startup is probably the way to go

comment make logrotate to only rotate at service startup
because it nicely handles renaming of old files, which i don't see a point in re-implementing
