These can be changed by going to where ever your dns hosting which most of the time is the registrar also, and change the records there. Looks like all you changed where the records for the internal network. Not for the rest of the world.
joebloggs is a fictitious domain. its not the real domain. im a little concerned to have the real one up. sorry about the confusion.
i have the following at the beginig of my dns zone file(which is also called joebloggs.com.zone:
joebloggs.com IN SOA papa.com. email.papa.com. (
2005120901 ; serial
900 ; refresh (15 minutes)
900 ; retry (15 minutes)
1209600 ; expire (2 weeks)
43200 ; minimum (12 hours)
joebloggs.com. A 18.104.22.168
*joebloggs.com. A 22.214.171.124
123.34.333.3 = old server
126.96.36.199 = new server
papa.com. = dns server name local
is it possible that this line :
A 123.34.333.3 is causing the issue? i tried taking it out and unfortuantely it stops things like emails ie imap.joebloggs.com etc
is there anyway of getting round it?
