MX records are only configured in your DNS records externally for your Domain via your Domains Control Panel.

who hosts your website?
who is your domain registered with?

Your domain registry would be the one who needs to configure your DNS record to point to your Exchange Server

@alanhardisty:

Thanks for your continuous  excellent postings here in EE.

Would you please explain a little more how domain joined clients can detect CAS server? Do they query DNS server or AD ?

Thanks in advance.

I will post in a related question if you wish..
