I setup my DNS server (AD-I), exchange server 2003 at home. It looks like this: modem - ISA server/DNS - DC/DNS/IIS/Exchange server. I created host records in ISA server for my website. In my DC, I didn't create any hosts. However, when I try to send email out, it's working ad I can also receive email from others. I really don't get it. I didn't setup any MX records and I check the online tool MX lookup, it also tells me that MX records not found. But email is working.... Can someone please tell me why? Thank you.

On ISA server(Member server):
(same as parent folder) - SOA - [x], isa.mydomain.com
(same as parent folder)  - NS - isa.mydomain.com
(same as parent folder) - host(A) - 76.X.X.X
isa - host(A) - 192.168.1.10
isa - host(A) - 10.0.0.2
www - host(A) - 76.X.X.X

On DC/DNS (Where exchange installed):
(same as parent folder) - SOA - [x], dns.mydomain.com
(same as parent folder)  - NS - dns.mydomain.com
dns - host(A) - 10.0.0.1
isa - host(A) - 10.0.0.2

MX records aren't *required* but preferred.
