Hello,

You can create a new zone called "yourcompany.com" then add the same records as your external zone but with the internal IP.
Ex: your external record for mail.yourcompany.com is : 8.8.8.8
in your local DNS for the new yourcompany.com zone, create a record mail pointing to your mail server local ip (ex:192.168.1.1)

Take care of your www, it will need to point to your external address. Same if you have another records.

You create a yourcompany.com zone

Inside the zone, you create as much as you have of " A record" or "Cname record"
