    I am working with a situation where the domain website is hosted at one ISP and I am hosting the emails on another. The website is the DNS for the domain. On that server, the MX record is set to point to with the appropriate A record pointing at the email server. I cannot change the record because they control that.

    Everything works fine (now that I have everything configured correctly) except for a minor administrative glitch. That is that the email server's mail server is listed as rather than This shows up when users login to the webmail as well as in the Outlook and other client setup procedures.

    My question becomes, can I change the mail server on individual domains to be rather than so that it is represented correctly? Would appreciate any help on this.

    Thanks very much in advance.
