EXCHANGE 2003: Setting Up Domains, DNS and MX
Posted on 2006-11-09
The name of the computer where exchange server resides is called "market"
and is registered with the DNS as such. The DNS and domain controller is located on another server within our network that also is the web server.
In the system manager for exchange, the server is also called "market"
Would the fully qualified domain name then be "market".DomainName.local
My question is, I need to setup MX records through our ISP to point to this server and it is asking for a fully qualified domain name. What I want, is to be able to call and reference the server eventually through POP3 accounts as
How do I go about ensuring that clients can point to our mail server as mail.DomainName.com
Also, Similarly, for SMTP, I want to setup SMTP.DomainName.com.
Finally, because our web server is a DNS / domain controller - do I need to redundantly setup MX or Host records there as well?
Thanks for the advice!
