Just bought a new dedicated server for our company.  We are moving our email accounts from a shared server environment (where they were not managed by us) to the new dedicated box (where they are managed by us).

Set up the domain and a test account, however we were concerned about getting or emails to properly point to the new box.  Does this take care of itself when the domain is repointed?  Any help or general tips would be appreciated.  We're web developers, not network admins so please be kind.

You just need to make sure that the "MX record" points to your IP address of the Mail server.

If you use NAT port forward port 25 to the internal IP.

This site has a very good mail test and DNS test.

You want to make sure that no one can relay through your server.
