This is kind of a dumb question but I want to see if I can do this. I have a single server running my domain and my exchange server. I have a name for it inside the company, say server1.mydomain.com
Now when I create an MX record, do I have to use the server1.mydomain.com, or can I just create an MX record for mail.mydomain.com, then an A record to reflect the IP address of mail.mydomain.com to the same IP as server1.mydomain.com. Though the server is not named mail.mydomain.com, the records will still point to the same IP.
This will work won't it?
So what I would have is my mail.myserver.com A record point to a public IP that is static NAT to the internal server.
Thanks in advance.
