I'm not really sure what they are asking as typically I create my own A and MX records, however what I am assuming is that they want me to create a CNAME that points from my domain sever to theirs.

 

It is basically an MX record for a web site I host for them. All email must go through their server. I would love to just create an A record that would point at their IP address but 1) I don't know how many IP addresses they are using and 2) I never know when they will change the IP address so creating a CNAME pointing at the A record makes sense to me I just don't know how to do it with WEBMIN. Make sense?

You may be slightly confusing in your question.  You will need to add the name

autodiscover    IN    CNAME   newdomain.com.

but its unrelated to the current domain autodiscover.mydomina.com

Why is that a CNAME, when they’re different domains?  Wouldn’t you just put a separate A record in each domain pointing to the same IP?

I am being asked to create a CNAME pointing from autodiscover.mydomina.com to autodiscover.newdomain.com

 

I am assuming in webmin you go to the Name Alias Link under the appropriate zone enter autodiscover under Name and under Real Name add: autodiscover.newdomain.com.

 

Which then looks like:

 

Name                                                    TTL                         Real Name

autodiscover.mydomain.com.   Default                 autodiscover.newdomain.com.

 

Is that correct?

 

Thanks
