2 domains for email in DNS


Hello,

I have installed and configured DNS server on RHEL4. My domain name is 'name.dos.govt.com'. I want to configure my domain also as 'name.govt.com' ie.,
2 domains . If mail sent to any one of the domains inside corportate network, it should come. (user@name.dos.govt.com ======= user@name.govt.com )

How it is possible???

at a DNS level, you just set an MX record to the right mail server for each domain.

well, yes !

It just depends how the mail server is configured (mostly postfix and virtual domains, aliases)

It's like google is your friend.
- setup postfix
- virtual hosting with postfix
- postfix + dovecot

Googles mail servers are the destination for about 1 trillion billion different domains.
