Moving email from pop3 to sbs2011

I am having problems moving my clients email from a "network solutions pop3" to sbs2011. I have changed the MX record to the servers external IP, and changed the A record to the servers external IP. I opened the ports, and waited a solid 24hrs. The only account that is pulling mail is the pop3. Any ideas.

Thanks in advance

Ok this mean that the problem isn't a DNS problem, maybe you should run a test email with telnet to verify if eamil is arriving ok from internet.

You have to use

telnet remote.mydomain.com

if I get it.

Then follow the instructions in

Check that your DNS records are pointed to the new server using nslookup in a computer outside of your network. Or use another public DNS server to resolve.

You can use cmd and there use the line

nslookup -type=mx youremaildomain.com 208.67.220.220

This should use server 208.67.220.220 to resolve your mx records for youremaildomain.com

if you don't get the desire record, verify the name servers for your domain. Use the next line.

nslookup -type=ns youremaildomain.com 208.67.220.220

You need to change the DNS zone in those servers.

@serchlop
i ran the 1st command and i came up with a "mydomain.com mx preference = 90, mail exchanger = (networl solutions server)
mydomain.com mx preference = 10, mail exchanger = remote.mydomain.com

it shows me the mx record was changed how i wanted it.
