Configure DNS zone file for MX records outside of domain
I'm using bindd on Red Hat 9 for our DNS server. We are starting to use SpamSoap for our spam service and I'm having trouble configuring the MX records in the zone file.
The MX record for our domain are now supposed to be lauttamus.com.inbound25.mxlogic.net
I entered an MX record in the zone file for lauttamus.com like this:
@ IN MX 25 lauttamus.com.inbound25.mxlogig.net
However, when that propogated throughout the Internet, the MX record returned is
I changed the MX record in the zone file to
@ IN MX 25 lauttamus.com.inbound25.mxlogig.net.
adding a period to the end of the line. It hasn't had time to propogate through the Internet yet but when I query directly to the DNS server it just returns the list of root name servers.
Can anyone tell me what is the proper syntax in the zone file for MX records for mail servers outside of the domain?
Thanks for your help.
