Question

IP address when sending mail from app

I want to send mail from our website, which is a DO app. The mail will go via Exchange 365, but I need to know the IP address that the website is on. Is this the same as the IP address set in the DNS A record?

If it is, for some reason there are two set, the first has 244 for the third number, the second has 243 for the third number. Which one is it likely to be?

Hi @f2chem,

If you are using a DigitalOcean Droplet, you’ll be having only one IP address. If you are using a DigitalOcean App it’s a little different.

Now, as said, if you are using a Droplet, you’ll just need to use the IP address which you see when you ping your Domain. So in short, yes the IP address is the same as the DNS record.
