Afternoon All,

I've inherited a 19-unit Restaurant chain that currently recieves email from a pop3 provider. I've installed and setup Exchange 2003 (single server setup) and i'm ready to begin the process of moving everyone onto it. I'm, obviously, going to use EXCH over HTTP, (MSExchange.org = GREAT how-to) however, for that i'd need to create an A Record on the Domain provider website as I don't want to plug in an IP to the clients computers and i'm hesitant about that. the hostname on record is directed to the current website hoster, and if I add say "mail.<domain>.com" as an A Record, do you think there would be any backlash. There is also a CName, that would have to be changed too, but obviously I can't put in an IP address for that.  

Any help or direction, I would be most grateful.

It's irrelevant. The A record can be Mail, getmemyspam, post, wibble, foo, bar, etc. etc. No problems as it's simply a pointer to an IP address.
Cname? What bearing does this have on matters?

I have a CName called "mail.<domain>.com" and I was going to have to change it's pointer to the ARecord to my server for the time being.

I appreciate it.
