MX Entry Maintenance

An MX (mail exchanger) entry tells a client which server receives mail sent to a domain name.

Assigning Priority to MX Entries

  • Lower values denote higher priority, with 0 being the highest possible priority.
  • The primary mail server(s) (with the lowest-numbered priority) will receive mail sent to your domain.
  • Secondary mail servers (those with higher priority values) can be used for backup or other purposes.
  • If you assign multiple mail servers the same priority, then when that level of mail server is needed, mail will be distributed to those servers randomly.
