Hi everyone,

I have just bought a domain name and want to link this domain name to my local server.
The reason why I want to do this, is because I want to route the mails from this domain to my Exchange Server.

I have the opportunity to add DNS-records for my domain name, but don't know what I should add?!
An MX-record to my public IP? Is this enough?

For the settings of my Exchange-server I am using this guide: http://www.servolutions.com/support/config_exchange_2010.htm

I hope you can help me.

Thanks in advance!

If you have an Exchange server already then you simply need to create an A record in the external DNS for something like mail.domainname.com and configure this to use your public IP address, once that's done you can configure the MX record to use mail.domainname.com.

You will need to forward port 25 from your router/firewall to your exchange server and setup the domain as an accepted domain in Exchange.

See my guide on setting up DNS here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2370-Exchange-DNS-Configuration.html

And also configuring Exchange 2007/2010 to relay for an additional domain here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2555-Configure-Exchange-2007-or-2010-to-relay-email-for-an-additional-domain.html

No problem with the given information in the links, perfectly explained!!

At this point I can also send out mail from the mailserver. This is because I have a dynamic IP from my provider which blocks smtp.

Thanks for the information!!
