    Clients domain is in register.com account.
    His dns servers are at register.com parked addresses (so not being used essentially)
    He has a mail server at his office for exchange.
    We'll be hosting his website on our server.

    OK
    His A Records have this:
    *: points to xx.xxx.xx.29 (our server)
    @: points to 216.xxx.xxx.xx (register's ip)
    mail: points to xx.xxx.xxx.34 (exchange server)


    What's happening:
    www.domain.com goes to our server and the new site just fine.
    http://domain.com goes to his old site hosted on register.com
    mail is working properly as far as we can tell


    Do I change the @ record to our IP as well? @ just makes me think i'll be screwing his mail up somehow...

    Thanks

    you will need to modify the @ to reflect to xx.xxx.xx.29 ( your server ).

    As the mail A record is pointing to his exchange server IP, the MX will be having mail.domain.com. ( unless the MX is domain.com. ) , else it will just fine.
