How do I set up DNS for inbound emails?
I would like to parse inbound emails in a Node.js app on an Ubuntu 14.04.4 x64 Droplet, so I’m trying to create an email address for my app’s domain that can post to a webhook. How do I create an email address like
For parsing, I am using Mailin.io, and following Mailin’s documentation I have changed my Domain records on Digital Ocean as follows:
MX 10 subdomain.example.com A subdomain [ip address of my droplet]
I have the webhook set up at
http://www.example.com/webhook, and if I post using
curl, I get the expected response, but I can’t figure out how to post to the webhook via email.
Am I going about this the right way?
