Can I use MX records to direct mail to different servers based on host name (for example, user@mail2.example.com)


Yes, you can use third level names to direct email to separate distinct servers. For example, if you wanted all mail addressed to users @user.example.com to be handled by one mail server and mail addressed to users @corp.example.com to be handled by another mail server, you could use the following records:

user   MX   10   server1.example.com

corp   MX   10   server2.example.com

Note: eNom’s POP Email product cannot be configured to use third level names.
