Whose IP to use for MX Record (ISP or Hosting company)
Posted on 2004-08-18
Silly question but we currently have an outside firm hosting our mail. We are implementing SBS 2003 and will be having mail hosted ourselves. When we tell our current host to point the MX Record to us (our clients are currently using POP3 to grab their mail from our hosting firm) what IP am I telling them?
I have 2 different numbers? One I got from our DSL provider 67.39.xxx.xxx (I believe this points to our router/firewall and then from there I need to forward port 25 to our internal server - 192.168.1.1) and another is from our current host which is 69.49.xxx.xxx
I assume I am using the first number from our DSL provider?
I am just confused about where to have the MX Record point to now so we can recieve mail.
