Lazyweb - DNS MX query
mini me + poo
Is it possible to have email to certain addresses in a domain handled by one mail server, and the rest by another, at the MX record level?

From whatever I can see, it's not: the domain's MX record(s) can only say 'send the lot to there' (with the ability to add 'or there, if that one's busy' via the priority system).

But I'd love to be shown to be wrong.

MX records only concern the part after the @, not the part before, so 'no', I'm afraid.

That's what I thought.


At the moment, sending it all to server A and having it pass the addresses it doesn't want to server B isn't working, because B is moaning it's not getting it directly. And it's A I have control over, along with the DNS...
