    I need to have mail for a domain I am hosting be redirectied to another server. I am not clear how to do this.

    In the Web Host manager there is a place to edit a MX entry point. Do I put the IP address of the other machine there?

    There is an Edit DNS area with a mail line. Currently the line has comain.com in it. Is that where I put his machines IP address?


    Or is there yet another line in the same page under domain that says domain.com then 0, then under record typ it says MX. Then further to the right it has a field for the domain. Is that where I put the IP of the other machine?

    Do you mean using the forwarding in cpanel for each pop account? That wouldn;t work. Forward to what? There are about 10 pop accounts for that domain.

    Or maybe I am not understanding your suggestion. :)

    Hi ramorse,

    all you have to do is the following.

    remove the domain and any subdomains from the /etc/localdomains file.

    edit the line which says

    domain.com 14400 IN MX 0 domain.com.

    to

    domain.com 14400 IN MX 0 mail.domain.com.

    Note the "." at the end of the line. that is important !

    and then edit the line which says

    mail 14400 IN CNAME domain.com.

    to

    mail 14400 IN A IP_of_remote_server

    note that you cant give IP in the MX line - this may not work with some mail servers.
