I'm trying to move a customers domain to my webhost and setup some email accounts. All very basic for most of you guys I guess. But I cant connect the dots in my head.
I have a reseller account at hosting company where I've made a account for the customer and added his domain and made a few email accounts.
I use another service to manage DNS for my domains. I have changed the nameservers with the domain registrar for the customers domain, pointing it to the nameservers of my DNS manager
In my DNS manager I have set ROOTIP for the customers domain to the IP of the reseller sub account (if that makes any sense)
I have done this before with other domains, but not with email accounts. My customer now says that after the nameserver change he hasn't recieved any mails. And now I feel im on thin ice.
So... what do I need to do to get his email working again? Im guessing I need to make some MX records with my dns manager. I've tried making one called mail.domainname.com with priority 10 - that is the ingoing and outgoing server according to the configuration info in the reseller sub account. Now im waiting for the DNS changes to take effect, its only been a few hours. But I want to make sure I'm doing it right :)
