    Wink [SOLVED] Multi Email/MX on One IP - Bind9


    Hi,

    Just wondering if its possible to have the following setup..

    One IP Address
    Domain Name: my d0main\ c0m
    Sub Domain: sub\ myd0main\ c0m

    The MX Records for myd0main\ c0m point to google, which is good..
    When someone sends an email to myemail [A----T] myd0main\ c0m it goes to my google account....

    however is it possible to point sub\myd0main\ c0m to some place different i.e to mta\ myd0main \ c0m ?


    If not guessing it would be possible with two IP addresses

    Also on another note does anyone have a link to a nice simple guide to configure bind9, so I have point my domains at my own box and do all the configuration there, atm I'm using the 123-reg control panel, and this would not allow what I have suggest above...

    Regards

    Thomas

    It's been a while since I have touched this. You could try the following:

    In your DNS records for mydomain\com you could add the following records in order:

    Code:
    sub  IN  A  <IP>
         IN  MX 10 mta\mydomain\com
    This should get you what you are looking for.

    As to a web site I don't know any good ones, but I would recommend getting a book, O'Reilly DNS and BIND 5th Edition.
