    DNS Mail

    Hi,

    I am helping someone setup there DNS for a .biz domain name, as they unable to change nameservers

    I told them to setup an A Record to point to the server IP, that works fine

    However I told them to put the same IP for the MX Record and, I checked it at introdns.com and it says:

    ERROR: Some of your MX records returned by your nameservers are IP addresses. This is not ok per the RFCs and you should change them.
    The problem records are:
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    This can cause problems !

    What should they put for there MX Record ?
    Regards,
    Garry

    You should set the MX as follows.

    domain.com. 14400 IN MX 0 domain.com.
