Keywords:  mailserver, smtp, ilsida, dns, priority
MX records are DNS records that enable mail servers to find the mail servers for another domain when sending internet email. When a mail server needs to send an email to, it performs a DNS lookup of the MX record for the domain, and sends the email to the resulting host.
See mail exchange record.
One of the record types that might be saved in DNS. It includes the information about the mailserver for a particular domain (information about which SMTP server email for this domain should be sent to). Multiple MX records may be defined with different MX preference values to denote priority.
