DNS Updating

The DSL Line our Exchange Server and DNS Server was on went down for the second time in 2 months.  Needless to say, our company will no longer use this provider.  I moved the servers to our T1, so I had to give them new IPs, and I updated all of the appropriate Forward Lookup Zones on our DNS server.  Slowly but surely, e-mails are coming in from various places.  Is ther a way to update DNS info on "higher" DNS servers, so the process is faster?  Or, is it one of those, "Sorry, just deal with it" situations.

By the way:  If I am not making any sense, it is because I have about 2 seconds worth of experience with DNS servers.  Let me know if I need to clarify some things.

Hi swamprattakate,

Oh I see, yeah if I understand you right this is a "just deal with it scenario," you cannot really affect the higher level DNS servers.

There isn't a lot you can do. It take up to 48 hours for DNS changes to propagate, and can then take up to a further 48 hours before any servers sending email to your domain flush their queues.
