How to setup MX record for a different domain name to the Primary Domain.

Hi

Im trying to setup an MX record on our PDC for a sister company.

This company has a totally different domain name and is a .com (primary is .co.uk)

I have instructed our web host to setup an MX record that points mail to www.u-phorm.com to our static IP address.

From reading through solutions on here it says to add a new mail exchanger to the primary forward looup zone.  However when i try and do this i get an error saying "name is invalid"  when i enter u-phorm.com as the host.

am i doing this correctly?

also our exchange 2010 is on a different server so will i need to do anything to forward on the mail to that with a mx record?

any help would be great.

thanks.
