"MXE" (User Simplified)

Using a mail record allows you to specify the address of your mail server. When you use a mail record, you must use an IP address in the address field. For example Host Name: mail, Address: 1.2.3.4. (Experts: Creating a mail record actually creates both the MX and the A record in DNS. Also, when using multiple mail servers, a preference value of 10 is used on all entries).
