  • The MX records for example.com indicate the mail servers responsible for accepting incoming emails for the domain.
  • In this case, there are three mail servers listed with their respective preference values (Pref), hostnames, and IP addresses.
  • The preference value determines the priority order in which the email servers should be tried for delivering emails. The lower the preference value, the higher the priority.
  • The mail server with the lowest preference value, mx1.examplemailserver.com (IP Address: 192.168.1.100), has the highest priority for receiving emails.
  • If mx1.examplemailserver.com is unavailable, the email server will attempt to deliver to the next server with a higher preference value, mx2.examplemailserver.com (IP Address: 192.168.1.101).
  • If both mx1.examplemailserver.com and mx2.examplemailserver.com are unavailable, the email server will then attempt to deliver to the server with the highest preference value, mx3.examplemailserver.com (IP Address: 192.168.1.102).
