Separated web server and mail server Am I doing it right? gutabo msg:3687029 5:21 pm on Jun 30, 2008 (gmt 0) Greetings,
I'm trying to separate my web server(VPS) and my mail server. I have already replicated the mail accounts on the new server(via Cpanel), and I THINK all it's left to do is to go to my VPS and on the domain information interfase update the mail.mydomain.com, pop.mydomain.com, smtp.mydomain.com A records using the new server's IP and updating the MX record using the new server's IP.
Am I missing something here?
Thanks in advance!

Also, if you are using a scripting language like PHP, you may have to edit the php.ini file for SMTP settings.

Thanks for the reply!
I had some "can't use IP" errors when receiving mails(not that I got the error messages, but people trying to mail me) so I have replaced the A records with CNAMEs using the mail server's domain DNS.
I will update this topic with more issues or a success note later ;)
