I have a primary domain controller running dns ip address 10.28.129.245. The clients have a dns address of 18.104.22.168 and a default gateway of 10.28.129.242. I have no idea what the dns server is or where its at. The problem is that i need all my domain computers to point to my domain controller for dns so they can log on faster and authenticate 100% of the time but a dozen computers have a pop email account with outlook express and when i have the computers pointed to the primary domain controller running dns they do not find the host mail.email.com 50% of the time. If I change them to the 22.214.171.124 they get there mail 100% of the time. I put pointer records in the dns to point to the mail.email.com but that is probably why it works 50% of the time instead of none. What can I do to make the email account resolve to the mail.email.com and still have the dns address pointed to my primary domain controller?
