MS exchange to new Domain host

I am working with a client to provide a new website. this will change the hosting to my virtual servers (under 1and1).
In repointing the DNS settings to my server from their existing domain (under demon.net) I also need to ensure that their email will still work.
My client uses MS exchange for mail, so in repointing I have ensured that for the mail servers I have repointed them to the existing settings:

mailgate.MyClientsDomain.com 10
relay-1.mail.demon.net 100
relay-2.mail.demon.net 100

(My IT support say that MS exchange is hosted on the clients server within their office)

Realising, from the settings above, that there is a new sub domain "mailgate.MyClientsDomain.com" I have now set this up on my hosting package.

However my IT support has said that they cannot access http://mailgate.MyClientsDomain.com/exchange/

I have found a bit of supporting information from demon.net
http://knowledgebase.demon.net/article/an-explanation-of-domain-names-and-dns.html
it says that the IP for mailgate.MyClientsDomain.com needs to be pointed to 192.0.2.0 . So I have tried to make these changes on the DNS setting within the 1and1 account, but I get a message that this IP address is not valid.

The Demon Knowledgebase also mentions another subdomian mail.yourdomain.co.uk.

Any suggestions on what I have to do to get the mail working here.

Sorry, I don't understand completely what are you trying to do.

But if you are just trying to prepare a new web site for a client, all you have to do is to add a new A record for new site at their existing public DNS server.
Example: newwebsite.myclientdomain.com. A 123.123.123.123

192.0.2.0 is not a public/routable IP address - it is used just for example. The IP used should be the public IP address of their mail server.

all it was was pointing the old mail server ip address to the newly recreated sub domain of  
http://mailgate.MyClientsDomain.com/exchange/
