how to configure wildcard in MX record I have synology mail plus server but I don’t want to be adding name every time I want to create a new email thank you for your help
You’d never need to add MX records for each email address unless you’re putting emails on subdomains, i.e
foo.example.org will need it’s own MX servers on
foo since it won’t inherit them from
Whilst theoretically they’re a thing (see RFC 1912: Common DNS Operational and Configuration Errors), I wouldn’t really recommend doing it.
I’m new to this I hope you have patience my configuration is this
Every time I add an email I have to add an MX record
Your question is unclear. (If English is not your native language, you can try and let the translator built into the community do the translation).
example.com MX mail.example.com mail.example.com A 192.0.2.1
If it is the
subdomain example, then you are better off creating individual MX records for each subdomain. This is because of the way wildcards work. Take this configuration for example:
example.com A 192.0.2.1 www.example.com A 192.0.2.1 mail.example.com A 192.0.2.1 example.com MX mail.example.com mail2.example.com A 192.0.2.2 *.example.com MX mail2.example.com
It looks like you want mail for
[email protected] to be sent to
mail2, but it will not. This is because the
A record for
alice exists, so the wildcard MX will not be used. Mail for
[email protected] will use the wildcard MX, as no matching A record exists.
I just had to add
in synology I only add emails
and i can receive mail
