Hello Everyone,

I am currently adding DNS records for Copernica.

Now I saw the following record.

Recordtype: MX
Recordnaam: feedback.yourdomain.de
Recommended value: 0 mail.copernica.net.
Current value: 10 mail.copernica.net.

I am wondering why the current value is 10. Saw the following settings in Cloudflare:

Does the 10 in the current value point to the TTL setting or to the priority?

Best regards,
Glenn

The value will be the priority which defines the order in which multiple MX records will be tried. If you have only one record the value won’t matter, but external services may ask you to use 0 to ensure their record is always first used.
