On a similar note, does anyone now of a free mail hosting company? Now I'm
sure that is not the correct term so let me explain....
I own two domain A and B. I pay for web/mail/ftp hosting for domain A (my
main one). I just point the www RR for Domain B to the IP address the
hosting company for domain A gave me. I can then determine which "site" to
serve from the incoming request (HTTP_HOST) and maintain the domain name (A
or B) in the location bar. Hunky dory - two sites being served from one
The problem is email! Obviously my hosing company only accept
mail at domainA.com and not from mail at domainB.com. So, is there anyone out
there who will act as my mail hosts? Some IP address for my MX record for
Domain B that will either gimme a POP3 account for allmail at domainB.com or
forward allmail at domainB.com to account at domainA.com?? Better still anyone
free, or at least cheap!?
I would pay for the full hosting of domainB but it'll have very few
hits/mails so it wouldn't be worth it. The company I registered domainB with
will only give me the service if I make them my primary DNS which I don't
want to 'cos their web forwarding is anal!
Any ideas? Can I explain anything better?!!?
