hi all
im runing exchange 2003 ent on server 2003 ent, im using stutic ip and mx record is point to it
my A records on godaddy are

www.my domain name-----ip
my mx record is
host=@ goes to my ip
no cnames are defined

yesturday i created a new A record wich is For the www.my domain.us, because im runing a website on my server
i created a new website on my iis and evrything worked fine with the web but i couldnt get into OWA by typing mail.domain.us/exchange enymore, instead i had to type
www.domain.us/exchange to get OWA interface
now...i have to network interface, one is running for OWA( port 80 and all incoming and outgoing necessary ports in my router are open
for the new web site im running aditional network card ( port 80 as well
my situation is, no OWA is available, no website is available!!! i have tried to delete the new A record (www.activenet.us) and it doesnt help
my domain is activenet.us and dnsstuff reported that everything looks fine except www.activenet.us
is there something i need to configure in my local DNS server? is the problem caused by using tow web services(one for exchange one for website)on the same ports?
