I want to redirect my site's mail server to another IP address. I setup an MX record for my mail server like this:

domain.org. IN  MX  1 mail.domain.org

But I do not know how redirect mail to another IP address like shown in this example DNS report: http://www.intodns.com/xilisoft.com


MX record only sets the domain to use for emails. In your case you set it to mail.domain.org. To control what mail.domain.org resolves to, add separate A record or CNAME for mail.domain.org. E.g.

mail.domain.org. in A
