DNS Different Servers for Mail and Web

    Hi all,

    Having a real spot of bother here, I'm new to DNS and it's rather confusing.

    I would like to host email and webmail on my server (Server1) but redirect all web traffic to another server (Server 2).

    This is what I have changed the DNS records to, as per below:

    Server1 IP Addres PTR domain.com
    domain.com. MX (10) mail.domain.com.
    domain.com. NS ns.domain.com.
    ftp.domain.com. CNAME domain.com.
    lists.domain.com. CNAME domain.com.
    mail.domain.com. A Server1 IP Address
    ns.domain.com. A Server1 IP Address
    webmail.domain.com. A Server1 IP Address
    www.domain.com. A Server2 IP Address

    I am not convinced it is working as when I do a DNS Checker Report (http://www.dnsreport.com/) it shows me Server1 IP Address for www record!? Any ideas would be muchly appreciated?

    Many thanks for any help you can provide.. . .
