Setting up the Mail server and the web server on two different IPs

I have a mail and web servers of domain.com both on IP aaa.aaa.aaa.aaa. I would like to move the web server www.domain.com to a different IP bbb.bbb.bbb.bbb, and change the NDS settings for domain.com to point to bbb.bbb.bbb.bbb.

My question is what would I need to do to have sendmail on aaa.aaa.aaa.aaa to continue to manage the incoming and outgoing mail of domain.com? Thank you.

Delivery of mail to a domain is solely governed by what host name is specified as the target of the MX(s) record for the domain. So moving the web server to a different IP and changing the DNS so that http://domain.com gos to the IP of the web server will have no affect on mail delivery.

like jlevie says you need to change the DNS MX entry...... in the sendmail, nothing to do.
