The MX record

by Kjell_Andorsen In reply to First Exchange setup

Should point to your Exchange server so that foreign systems know the address to send all mail. You first create an A record for the server and then have the MX record point to the A record for the exchange server. Also make sure that all nescessary ports on your firewall are open for the server to receive mail.

your domain registrar has associated with your domain name a set of name servers which resolve your public name to an IP address. Typically theirs and resolve to their address.

For you to receive mail at your address you have to change the name servers to your own DNS server or purchase a third party dns solution.
