Sub-domains with MX records (for Mailgun)

I was in the process of migrating the remainder of my DNS records from my previous hosting provider when I ran into a bit of a snag. One of my domains uses Mailgun but I also have normal mail setup as well. To get around this I have a subdomain setup for Mailgun (‘’) so the MX record looks like this: 300 IN MX 10 300 IN MX 10

Trouble is, I can’t seem to be able to put that in via the DO control panel. Anyone have any suggestions on what I might be able to do to work around that?

Cool thought that might be the case, but wasn’t sure if that might work. Thanks for the help!
