MX records for external domain

    Hit a question I have not had before.

    I have a client who wants to host the e-mail of one domain with us, but keep the domain pointing elsewhere.

    How do I set that up under plesk?

    Do I set up MX records under their domain name (its ip points elsewhere) or do I point to my domains mail server?

    If I understand you right, you want to have a domain's mail on plesk and hosting for domain somewhere else. If domain's DNS server is also on plesk, then you probably need these DNS records:

    domain.com A <external.ip>
    domain.com MX mail.domain.com
    mail.domain.com A <internal.ip>

    And if the domain's DNS is being handled by someone else, then you will have to have them point the MX record to your IP
