MX Records, different servers for different subdomains

Hi all

Is it possible to set up MX records that point to a different server for each subdomain

Like:

IN A mysite.com. 192.168.2.2
IN A helldesk 192.168.2.3

Then, MX records for email@mysite.com (email server is 2.2) and email@helldesk.mysite.com (email server is 2.3)

sorry forgot to add. that you also probably need to create a host mail or something in that new subzone with IP 192.168.2.3 and use that name in the MX record

you are welcome.

you don't have to create that mail.helldesk.mysite.com. A record if you already have a name associated with that 192.168.2.3 IP.just use the existing name for  MX record
