DNS question


I have posted with this problem previously, but I came up with a solution and just wanted to know if anyone out there thought it would work. Here it is:
The company I work for will be acquiring another ISP soon, and I want to be able to keep the original email addresses of the new customers, as well as continue with the email addresses of our customers. The email addresses of the company we are acquiring is xxx@def.com, while the email address of our customers is xxx@abc.com. We will hopefully be getting the email server of the other company, to use to continue for the new customers' email purposes. We are running DNS servers with Slackware 10, and I want to setup a zone (named.def) for the def.com customers and add the MX records to send to the email server of the new company. Consequently, the email server is running RedHat 7. Will new email that comes for xxx@def.com be routed to the email server for def.com customers? Am I missing anything? Is there an easier way to do this?


Thanks for any help you can provide.

It sounds like you just want to keep the two systems completely separate, just like they are now, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

DNS question

The ISP we are aquiring is at a separate location, with separate ip addresses, etc.. and we will be taking over their service for the customers. We'll add their server to our set of servers to handle the email for the company, so the DNS information for the server will be changing, it will be added to our DNS zone.

Thanks again

Ok. So just add a new dns zone for their domain pointing to that server.

OK, thanks, that's what I was thinking would work, but I'm new to a lot of this and wasn't sure if my theory would work.

Thanks
