Is that a must to create a CNAME or IP address or just MX record will be fine?
Posted on 2005-04-21
I owns a domin name call XYZ.com .
Recently, I got to create a subdomain and maps to a mail hosting company (called ABC.COM)
their mail hosting server is thepc.ABC.COM
The subdomain I create is mit.XYZ.com .
My plan is such that email sending to mit.XYZ.com can be collected at my mail hosting company at their server thepc.ABC.COM. Therefore my email will be having the syntax of user01@mit.XYZ.com
My DNS entry looks something like this :-
mit.XYZ.COM MX thepc.ABC.com
Can I just end here?
or do you think I should also create a CNAME, so that my email system will work find?
mit.XYZ.com MX thepc.ABC.com
mit.XYZ.com CNAME thepc.ABC.com
Please advise. is it a msut to add in that CNAME entry, or need not at all.
