    I am moving over a new domain, domain.com where the website is hosted on a different set of servers. I will have the A-records point to that server's IP address.

    However, email is hosted with us. But the mail.domain.com is setup by default with a CNAME record pointing to domain.com . . . which is going to be the other server by virtue of the custom A-Record. How do I keep mail.domain.com pointing to our local server? Do I change it to an A-record??

    (And to clarify, this is not for the MX records - those will be fine. This is for connecting an email client to the server using mail.domain.com)
