    Thank you very much for your patience and valuable advice! Off to buy a new domain and read up on renaming the server using ZmSetServerName.

    P.S. I can't find the "Solved" button, but this thread has been SOLVED Till next time

I guess this is similar to how hosting companies work in that you point your domain to google apps or whatever it is.

    With the second method you configure both the public and private DNS records to reflect the new domains. In contrast to the previous approach, each domain looks as if it "lives" on its own email server.

    Help me decide what to do.
    I too shall prefer the second method, if its possible to configure so.

    Request you to please post on how to do that.

    Another question I have is, since the MX of all the domains point to a single IP (Public) with corresponding A records, does this not cause issues with NSLOOKUP by external mailservers?
