how to add MX record into my DNS server?

By webmaster ·
We have a Windows 2000 server in the company, also with IMail server installed, so it acts as a mail server.
In the meantime, the mail server is also a proxy server, providing Internet connection to the whole LAN.
But it seems that the mail server doesn?t work constantly, sometimes people cannot send out mails.
I try to diagnose to find out the problem. Now it might be due to our above DNS server.
We have an important partner in UK. E-mail is the most important way for our communication. So in order to guarantee our mails can arrive in their mail system. I think it may be helpful to add the MX record of the UK Company into DNS of our own server.
In DOS command, I run nslookup set qt=mx, have found out the MX record. How can I add them to DNS of our server?

Open the DNS Manager.

In the DNS Manager menu, click List Zones.

In the Zone List form,click on the zone name, for which you want to add your record.

The Host List form opens and displays all existing records for that zone.

In the Host List form, choose Add Record.

In the Add Record field, click the arrow, and choose Add Mail Exchanger (MX) Record.

In the Mail Domain field, enter the domain host name.

In the Mail Server field, enter the mail server name that will map to the specified domain name.

In the Delivery Precedence field, enter a number to designate mail priority among mail servers.

The lower the number in the Delivery Precedence field, the higher the priority. If there are two mail servers with the same delivery precedence, one of them is randomly chosen.

Click Add.
