Hi

I have four virtual hosts on my lynix machine. this machine is also DNS server.
and mail server. All four work with same mail server. I want to change one of them so the mail server be some other remote machine [exchange]

How should I set up MX record.

 NS      ns.mainhost.com.
 NS      ns2.mainhost.com.
 MX    10      servername.mainhost.com.

mainhost.com.        A       123.129.197.789

www             CNAME   mainhost.com.
ftp             CNAME   mainhost.com.
mail            CNAME   mainhost.com.
servername        A       123.129.197.456
*               A       123.129.197.789


############
and the host2's zone file that I want to change is like this

 NS      ns.mainhost.com.
 NS      ns2.mainhost.com.

*               A       123.129.203.123
host2.com.        A       123.129.203.123
www             CNAME   host2.com.
ftp             CNAME   host2.com.
mail            CNAME   host2.com.


so how I can change host2's zone file so its website be same on 123.129.203.123 and its user@host2.com email and mail server be somewhere else, like point to 66.23.23.14

Thanks

Simple. In the zone file for host2.com include an MX record pointing to the mail server you want to be authoritative for that domain.
