    Zonefile question

    How do I edit the zonefile below to allow delivery of mail that is going to [email protected] as well as [email protected]. Currently only mail that is going to [email protected] is being delivered. If mail is sent to [email protected] it is rejected.

    Here is the current zonefile:

    IN MX 1 <server>
    IN A <ip>
    www IN CNAME @
    ftp IN CNAME @
    mail IN CNAME @



    Thanks in advance for your time!

    You would both have to enter an entry for that name, like:

    pop3 IN CNAME @

    And have to set up your mail server to understand that pop3.yourdomain.com can receive mail and such.

    You would just add the pop3 line, don't remove any currently in there, or you will break other stuff
