    Hello,

    i have a Plesk 7.5 server, the website is hosted on this server but the emails must be hosted on another server.

    How should i configure the DNS of my server so that only emails are redirected to the other server which config is :

    mail.thedomaincom ---> 212.12.232.244 -----> primary address
    mx.thedomain.com ---> 196.219.23.26 -----> secondary

    Thanks a lot

    Tang

    Two things:

    1. Edit the DNS zone, modify the MAIL record and change the IP address to the external server.

    2. Disable the mail services for the domain.

    I don't see anything wrong with what you've done. What happens when you query the DNS through NSLOOKUP?
