Mailhost name change possible?

Recommended Posts

A customer I provide backup MX for has registered some of my hosts under his name, and now when I try to activate Mailhosts for my account it's lumping all my other mail hosts under his pre-existing entry - ie, when I view my mailhosts it's showing his name.

Can this be changed? If I delete the mailhost entry will it delete it for him as well? Is it possible for Mailhost entries to not overlap for different users like this?

Thanks,

Bryan

Send all the details -- mailhost name, your register SC email address, etc to the address in my sig and I'll see what I can do about it.

Deleting your mailhost entries does not alter the master database at all, only your referece to the database. So nothing that you do will affect any other user.

Just to clarify, the "mailhost name" can be confusing it is the name specified by the first user to register that particular group of mail servers (mailhost). Once it has been created, no user can change it. It can be changed by management (see Ellen's post preceeding this one) see Mailhosts - definitions for more information.

Mailhost name will always overlap different users. The following is the mailhost entry for Earthlink.

Mailhost name: Mindspring

Email address: "your email address"
