    Hi guys, The situation is this: we have a Cisco PIX device that forwards all
    IP traffic for a public IP which resolves to webmail.fun.com, to an internal
    mail server (with a private IP 172.16.2.224 located on the internal network).
    our internal network has a private IP class 172.16.0.0 with a FQDN of
    fun.local. Now AD integrated DNS is setup on 2 servers in the internal
    network with forwarders for external domains. What we want to achieve is that
    we want the internal dns to resolve webmail.starcomms.com to 172.16.2.224
    instead of the public IP as it is doing now for internal users. I have thot
    of creating another forward lookup zone fun.com on our dns servers for this.
    is this a recommended solution? if so pls what are the consequencies? Thks in
    advance.
