    Hello,

    I've had a customer request that I create an A record so that mail.domain.com points to IP 123.123.123.123.

    Does anyone know how to do this?

    Thanks in advance,
    Redlorry919.

    When you do this, it might be a good idea to check and make sure that domain.com is no longer in '/etc/localdomains' and that it is in '/etc/remotedomains' or scripts running on your server will have trouble delivering mail to mail.domain.com
