Email DNS Question
Posted on 2010-11-10
We're in the process of migrating email from our local servers to Google Apps - and I'd like it to be as seamless as possible for our clients.
Currently - in their email progs (outlook, thunderbird) - they are pointing to:
smtp server: mail.ourdomain.com
So - it's the same.
On google - they specify:
I was *hoping* to be able to make it as seamless as possible by just changing the DNS records on our server to have an A record for mail.ourdomain.com point to google...but can I? Since our current server is using that same record for both incoming and outgoing - and google has two different addresses (imap and smtp) - can I do that?
Is there any way given this scenario for me to do a DNS pointer that will accomplish this change on the client end seamlessly w/o having them change their account settings?
Thanks in advance!
