Hi, I have a situation where I want to create a CNAME record            pointed to machine1.some.other.domain                              
Also, I want a MX record to pointing to machine1.some.other.domain 
Basically, I want to setup a test web-based email system. According to          
RFC 2181 and RFC 1912 A CNAME record is not allowed to coexist with any other   
+data. Does any body have any suggestion as to a workaround for this. I don't   
+want to add a A record for to allow for flexibiltiy in moving its 
+target machine
