  • Exchang email & web hosting w/ Go Daddy

    I have a SBS2003 SP2. I set up a domain with Go Daddy which I will call "mydomain.net". The public IP address of our server is 12.345.678.123. I configured DNS records as follows:

    A Records (Host, Points to, TTL)
    @, 12.345.678.123, 1 Hour
    mail, 12.345.678.123, 1 Hour

    MX Records (Priority, Host, Goes To, TTL)
    10, mail, mail, 1 Hour

    CNAMES (Host, Points To, TTL)
    owa, mail.mydomain.net, 1 Hour
    all other CNAMES = xxx, @, 1 Hour

    All of this works OK. Now, the problem:

    I also purchased Web Site hosting through Go Daddy and wanted to set up a web site for our company. I started by setting up a starter page and went to publish said page. In doing this, the A record automatically changed from
    @, 12.345.678.123, 1 Hour TO @, 98.765.432.987, 1 Hour (an address from Go Dadddy who is hosting the web site). This seemed to make sense, since they were doing the web site hosting. CNAME www was pointing to @, so I thought I would be good to go.

    I could now access the website, but I could no longer receive any external emails. Internal emails and external outgoing emails seem to work OK.

    I am sure there is some simple DNS or server setting to adjust, but I cannot figure it out. Go Daddy doesn't seem to be able, or willing, to help. I am new to this, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the long post.

      I got your PM.
      I just checked it out. You do not have any MX records or even a website.

      Your www and @ are both pointing to your SBS server

      make sure you are editing the DNS of
      ns33.xxxxxxxxxx.com
      and
      ns34.xxxxxxxxxxx.com

      those are specified under your domain registration
