I started by pointing one of my domains to box.domain1.com and set up my email with no problem. I then began adding additional email addresses from 4 other domains by changing the MX records for each through cPanel to point to box.domain1.com .
I was having difficulty propagating the MX record changes so reached out to inmotionhosting for help. They said that all my name server records had been changed to ns1.box.domain1.com . All of my websites are still up and running. Is this a problem? Somehow the systems know where to find the websites, even though they each have different IP addresses.
I’m thinking now that what I should have done was pointed all the name servers to box.domain1.com and then pointed web traffic back to inmotionhosting? The problem with that, is that I tried changing the name server setting for one of my Bermuda (.bm) domains and it wouldn’t accept box.domain1.com as valid.
Comments and help would be appreciated!
