MX record for subdomains?
Is there any way with DigitalOcean DNS to create an MX record for a subdomain?
Our email is handled by Gmail, so we have the standard MX records:
MX 1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
MX 5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
MX 5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
MX 10 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
MX 10 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
However, we also process incoming email through our application via Mandrill (http://mandrill.com/). This requires a separate subdomain (e.g. inbound.mydomain.com), for which we’d need subdomain-specific MX records.
There doesn’t seem to be a way to specify a subdomain name on the DigitalOcean DNS control panel. Am I mistaken, or am I going to have to use a separate managed DNS provider (e.g. http://dnsmadeeasy.com or AWS Route53)?
