I have a mail server located in the physical building of the domain and want to move it off site. By that I mean I have a mail server abc.com and a domain abc.com that also manages DNS (active directory). I do not have any MX records set up in my domain because when email is sent from any user it goes directly to the in house/ on site mail server.
I am moving the mail server off site for various reasons. My question is, when we make the change to the off site server, how do I make the MX record point outside the domain? Is it as simple as creating an MX record in DNS and pointing to the new IP?
I also want to make the http
: web traffic for abc.com go to the new server as well. I am not sure how to do this since all PCs in the domain point to abc.com for DNS and Active Directory.
Thank you in advance for your help!!!
