    I am new to the dedicated server world...

    I'm used to the shared hosting basic cPanel functions, so with this new dedicated server I have WHM and the full cPanel and a whole bunch of functionality that I've never seen before on my other accounts.

    The server that I'm dealing with has the DNS set up as:

    mail.abcserver.com for the inbound/outbound mail server.

    We are transitioning from a shared hosting server to this dedicated server. The shared server uses pop.abcserver.com and smtp.abcserver.com respectively.

    I contacted the hosting company, and they tell me simply:
    with no explanation as to how to go about it. I looked in the documentation but couldn't find anything that helped.

    Can someone give me some help and point me in the right direction to getting what I need done?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Log into WHM
    2. Select Edit DNS Zone
    3. Choose the DNS zone of the domain you need to manage

    Add A-record entries such as you wish

    smtp.yourdomain.com. IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    pop.yourdomain.com. IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

    where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of the machine handling your SMTP/POP3 chores.

    PS: If you edit the zone, you'll already see some existing entries (i.e., mail.yourdomain.com A-record pointing to some IP address)
