How do I setup the DNS records for an exchange server ?

I need to know how to configure DNS records for incoming mail in server 2008 for Exchange 2010, for outgoing I would just use the smtp server of my current email server correct ?

You need to configure mx record in your isp dns server.

With a new exchange 2010 install you need to make sure that the receive connector is set to allow anonymous connections.

In addition you need to have the MX record at your domain registrar point to your server's FQDN.

Also, how would I set a subdomain say exchange.mvyairport.com point to my OWA.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

 
AustinComputerLabsCommented:
For that you need to have an A record at your domain registrar created for exchange.mvyairport.com point to your router and then forwarded to the server with OWA running.

This is an over simplification, if you need more specifics let me know.

Alright, thanks, i'll be transferring over from my old hosted email and hosted web server, to an onsite Exchange Server and onsite web server later this week, and it will be great to answer small questions like that. For the major configuration of the server we have contracted dell to do that as for the configuration of A records MX records and pointers im not sure if they do that.

I believe we will be using Godaddy to host our domain name.

Best to make the switchover after 5 on a Friday if possible. that gives you the weekend to work out any bugs.

Yes, I was planning to have dell set everything up Wensday and Thursday, another question, how do I point the subdomain to another server inside my network.. I have mvyairport.com pointing to my web server inside my network then I will need exchange.mvyairport.com to point to port 443 so I can access my OWA

Normally both point to your public IP at your registrar.
On your router port 80 will be forwarded to your web server and 443 to your OWA server.
