Separating domain names

I have just bought my own reseller account. I have a customer who wishes to use their own domain name (currently hosted on another ISP's server) but who would like to continue to use the email facility of the other ISP.

Is there any way of separating the domain name so web requests come to me but emails go to the other ISP?

In the domain setting(MX record) of the registrar website,

u can modify the MX record of that domain to his/her ISP mail server

Hi!

Or better yet let his current ISP continue to hold the records and just ask them to point the www.domain.com address to your server.

Hans,

What exactly do I need to tell the other ISP to do this? How does this work? Do you you have a link to a website that explains this?

Hi!

Been away a few days. Tell the current ISP the following, it might be sensitive, they might still want to get paid extra for it or something.

1. Tell them client would like to keep DNS and MAIL services with them.
2. Find out what IP you need to point the www domain too with the new service provider.
3. Tell the current ISP you want an A record for www.mydomain.com, or whatever domain you have, and give them the IP you got from new service provider.

Now it will take about 24-72 hours before everyone will get to the new server with that domain name.
