This feature allows you to route a domain's incoming mail to a specific server. Changes to the MX entry will also result in changes to the DNS records.
This feature is useful if you wish to create a backup mail exchanger to handle mail when the server is down.
To determine how your server routes mail for a domain:
Local Mail Exchanger — The domain will accept mail, regardless of whether a higher-priority mail exchanger has been designated. (If a higher-priority mail exchanger exists, the server will route mail to both domains.)
Backup Mail Exchanger — The domain will act as a backup mail exchanger, and will hold mail in the queue if the primary exchanger becomes unavailable.
Remote Mail Exchanger — The domain will not accept mail. Instead, it will send it to the primary mail exchanger.
Under Add New Record, set the priority for the new MX entry.
In the Destination text box, enter the hostname of the new mail exchanger.
To delete an MX entry:
