How do I set up a CNAME record?


I'm not sure if this should go under servers or software, but since I'm using squirrelmail I'm throwing it in software.

I'm using DynDNS to host my domain, and as I just mentioned I'm trying to set up squirrelmail on my server, and this is my first time so its all just to learn how. I'm stuck at how to make a CNAME record. I've looked through google quite a bit and as far as I can tell its used as a lookup record to resolve sent email. However, I'm a bit confused as to how it is implemented both on DynDNS and within squirrelmail.

Does anyone have a better understanding of what CNAME is and how its implemented?

Thanks,
-SS

This seems to be where you should be looking for DynDNS: http://www.dyndns.com/support/kb/rec...interface.html
