I'd like an advice to properly set up my Exchange server (that someone
else have set-up). I have this ISP DNS configuration:
- An MX Record, called mail.xxxxxxx.com
- An A Record, called yyy.xxxxxxx.com, with the same ip address of
- A PTR Record for the MX Record
In Exchange 2003, I have seen that is configured a Fully Qualified
Domain Name that is ppp.xxxxxxx.com (for the default virutal smtp
In the DNS settings of my Windows 2003 server, I see an MX Record (and
an A record that points to a Smart Host in DMZ) for ppp.xxxxxxx.com.
This MX Record, for working properly with he configuration of ISP DNS
configuration, shouldn't be mail.xxxxxxx.com?!?
In case I decide to modify it, I have to create another MX Record and
a A Record called mail.xxxxxxx.com (in DNS settrings) and apply the
new FQDN to Virtual Server SMTP, or I have to make other changes?
