I have two machines, the old machine is mail.domain.com and the new one is mail1.domain.com I need to setup the new machine so that it will accept incoming mail as if it were mail.domain.com without having to change settings for all my users.  Is that possible, or is it easier to just make mail1.domain.com, mail.domain.com and make sure they aren't plugged in at the same time.
