DNS Question

    Hi There,

    A few clients with us have their own mail servers onsite that just require us to forward all mail to them.

    Plesk seems to not like this. I've set up my dns as follows on a test domain.

    mx = primx.domain.com
    a = primx.domain.com =

    My understanding of this is that this will take all email and then send it, directly to my customers mail server.

    Every time I go to send an email to my test domain, I get a delivery failure report from mail enable saying it can't deliver the message. Surely mail enable shouldn't be involved.

    I have disable mail enable and deleted the domain from mail enable. I’m stuck now on what to try, other than having these domain names DNS entries hosted elsewhere.

    Any suggestions?

    Try to get working IP address (the one you gave is not correct) and name of the server which they will use for mail.

    These records should exist in DNS server of your domain:

    yourdomain.com. | MX (10) | mail.yourdomain.com.
    yourdomain.com. | MX (30) | theirmailservername.com.
    mail.yourdomain.com. | A | theirmailserverIPaddress

    I used that IP address as a random example.

    This is what I now have below.
