I’d like to know how to configure my DNS to be able to use a wildcard for my domain and an MX record together. Here is what I’ve done:
@ IN SOA dns100.ovh.net. tech.ovh.net. (2012052100 86400 3600 3600000 300) IN NS ns100.ovh.net. IN NS dns100.ovh.net. IN MX 1 mail.gestixi.com. IN A 18.104.22.168 * IN CNAME gestixi.com. www IN CNAME gestixi.com.
The problem is that when I check my DNS, I get this error:
MX records shall not point to an alias defined by a CNAME
Because of this error, it look like I can’t send my from some internet providers.
mail.gestixi.com needs to be an
A record, instead of getting caught by the wildcard
If it’s on that same server, then just give it an
mail IN A 22.214.171.124
I’m not sure how strictly relays actually enforce this part of the standard, since it just causes some extra lookups, but it’s better to be on the compliant side!
