Pointing MX Records to an IP Address.
Posted on 2012-03-25
I have a client that has hired me to do a web site for him. However he has an employee that has some very important emails and those emails are stored on the current name Servers webmail option. That is none of the employees emails/contacts are copied to a laptop.
Hence, I wanted to setup Outlook on the employee's laptop and pull all of the email information to the laptop's outlook profile. And then change the IMAP settings to the new GoDaddy Name servers. However, it has seemed that something has always gotten in the way of me having access to the employees laptop.
1. Business moved to a different location, internet was not setup yet.
2. Employee brought his laptop home to do work on the weekend.
But, the owner of the company would like to have his new web site up; but, still not loose the existing emails.
How can I have the company web page point to my godady name servers; but, still use the other already setup mx records(email server) for the employee's email needs?
That way I can have the new web site up; but, still use the other hosting company's web server for the company's email.
