DNS A record

I’m trying to give users access to do their timesheets from home using a web browser.  I have set this up in the accounting software that runs on a server on our local network.  

I want the users to go to timesheet@domainname.com, .  Do I add an A record in the DNS called timesheet@domainname.com point it to the public IP address of the firewall for that entry?

 I will then set the firewall to forward the request to the server on the internal network.  Is this correct as far as name resolution of timesheet@domain.com?

Thanks,
cja

Correct, except that you dont have to put @ but a dot instead: timesheet.domain.com, so you would gave a timesheet host under the domain.com
