Adding an MX-record to a DNS-template/DNS-zone

When creating/updating a DNS-template/DNS zone and you need to add/update an MX-record, use the below instruction for adding/updating the MX-record in the correct format to/for the relevant DNS-template/DNS-zone that is to be created/updated.

To add/update an MX-record, make sure the MX-record type is selected from the list of available records
Submit a name for the MX-record in the name field and provide a mail server in the content field. In case you wish to set a different TTL than specified in the SOA-record, submit a custom TTL for the MX-record as well. Last but not least, define a Priority for the MX-record if applicable


RFC 1035 compliant mail servers will not accept an MX record if the MX record points to an IP address. MX records must point to a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) that is not a CNAME.

That's all there is to for submitting an MX-record in the correct format using the various Realtime Register DNS services that are available in our portal
