I have a server connected to an internet connection with a dynamic ip. Normally I would set my dns with a  cname for pointing all traffic to my dynamic dns address. However here is the catch. I want my email to be routed to a server other than my dynamic dns server. I want my web traffic to still go to my dynamic dns server. How do I accomplish this?
