MX and A records delima for Exchange and web site Hosting
Posted on 2007-10-18
We recently took over an office that has an exchange server, they had a hoster that was doing the web page and controlling the records(ie dns, mx, a and so on). The hoster went out of business and now we have transfered to a new hoster but the only way to get the exchange e-mail server working is to point the MX records to the whatever.com and the A record to the IP of the exchange server. Now my exchange server mail that i controll works but the web site that they (the people we transfered to)are hosting will not work. if they change the A record to whatever.com the web site comes up but the my mail server quits sending mail. I guess what i am asking is am i missing something on the exchange server settings for the new hoster or are they pointing something wrong.
