Hi All: Is there any valid way in DNS to point requests for 
"" to ""?

Can a CNAME be used for that?

In this particular instance, I have a domain where the mail is being hosted 
at (, and when godaddy maintained the NS, 
they were aliasing "" to "".

If I take over the DNS, normally I'd need to create an A record for 
"webmail" and point it at the IP for ""...but what if 
there is more than one IP for that address?
