dont have fixed IP account but need to configure MX record ?

Hi,

I added an MX record to a domain name hosted by plusnet. This MX record points to an A record hosted by another ISP. This A record point to my SMTP server.

When talking to plusnet support they suggested that when selcting the following from the members centre control panel:

-Domain names
-Configure

That under the MAIL SETTINGS heading i should see POP3, SMTP and OTHER. The SMTP option is not available as I dont have a fixed IP with plusnet. This is what I needed to set.

However, if i configure the MX record to be of a higher priority that the one setup by default by the POP3 mail service surly all mail hitting my domain would be sent to the my manually configured MX record then redirected A record name ?

Anyway, i tried this an it did work. Plusnet support pointed me to the forum.

Thanks if anyone can help.
Scott.

Give it a chance Smiley

Incidently, can you let me know the domain name, through PM if you wish?
