2.2. Who is Your Mail Server?

An MX record tells senders how to send email for your domain.

When your domain is registered, it's assigned several DNS records, which enable it to be located on the Internet. These include MX records, which direct the domain's mail flow. Each MX record points to an email server that's configured to process mail for that domain. For users to send and receive email, their domain's MX records must point to a server that can process their mail.

To find out what mail server is handling your email, use the MX Lookup tool at the MX Toolbox website.
