MX questions

I am an end user and I have several domains with their respective e-mail accounts which I manage myself.
I have signed a contract with a large multinational which is allowing me to use one of their domain names (let's call it associated e-mail (, however the web site must be hosted on their servers and they do not wish to manage the e-mails.
They have told me "tell me where to point the MX"...

My question: if I give them the MX of one my current domains, will I be able to send mails with the address? or will I be limited to the to which it is pointed?

If this were possible how should the MX records be written, would it be: MX 10

Thanks for your help because as you can probably guess I am quite confused.

Yes you will be abe to send using address.
The MX address will be your mailserver so check what the mx record is for your current

I suggest you also ask the admins of to also include in their SPF record as a permitted sender.

Yes, you can send mails with the address but if they include your domain name in their SPF record as a permitted sender then it will be better for you.
