Pointing external DNS mx record to the correct "Mail exchange"

October 15, 2014 2.4k views

We are about to launch our server, but do not with to do so before we know how mx-records work when pointing from an external DNS service, to our droplet.

When we are about to make the mx-record we need to submit the following data: HOST, MAIL EXCHANGE and lastly PRIORITY.

The second parameter is usually a server dedicated to mails. But we do not know the information we need to submit.

A little information: We are hosting around 60 websites on our current server, and wish to switch to digitalocean. Our droplet runs WHM and cPanel. And we need to be able to point any mx record our clients might have, to our droplet.

Thanks in advance
