Our company changed their name and created another domain name. We decided to keep both domains active. I set up the new domain name in exchange to be able to receive mail from the new domain name.
On the DNS Server, under Forward Lookup Zones, I did see my old domain zone so I created another zone for my new domain. Inside the new zone, I created a new A record.
My question is, in my old domain I don't see an MX record. Am I looking in the wrong area? Should there be one?
Should I create a MX record for the new domain in order to receive mail for the new domain?
I created a MX Record within the domain registered company. Is this the only place to make an MX Record or should I make another one on DNS even though I don't see an MX Record for my old domain.
Is there a test that I can run on the old domain as well as the new domain to confirm setup for the DNS? I think that I can use the NSLookup, but I don't know what arguments to enter.
Still, I am not receiving email through the new domain, even though I did the following:
Added the new domain to the recipient policy.
Made sure each user in their mailbox they have two email accounts one with the new domain and one with the old domain.
Created an A record as well as the MX Record with the register for my new domain.
Created a zone and inside the zone created an A record inside the DNS in my domain controller for the new domain.
My new domain now can go to my website. So my old and new domain have the same public IP address.
But, I still am not recieving email through the new new domain. What am I missing?
Any Ideas or recommendations are greatly appreciated...
