    Trouble with mx records


    I have a windows 2003 server and one web site and a mail server on it.

    I decided to change mail server and after that problems started. I bought my domain from godaddy. On godaddy's domain management section i changed everything about "mail" "mx" to new server's ip, but mails still comming to old mail server.

    I'm stuck with this.
    Is there any sugessions or an article about that?

    If you've pointed the domain to the first server, you will have to tell THAT server about the new mail server.

    So go into your windows server, and edit the MX entries there. Not at GoDaddy.

    Remove the old Mailing account from your server ,

    for example if your domain name is so remove the from your old mailing server .

    It should be

    @ MX (IP address here)

    Don't add www. anywhere or mail. anywhere etc.

    tried tried tried finally found the clue

    in godaddy i made an mx record

    host: @ (old server ip)
    points to:

    and on the old server just an mx record points to new ip and thats it.
