Inbound Servers

Recipient: Recipient can be a wildcard (*) or an exact email address.

IP address or FQDN: Fully qualified domain name (FQDN) is a unique name, which includes both host name and domain name, and resolves to a single IP address.

  • For example: hostmaster1.example.com or mailhost.example.com

  • Not valid: example.com

Port: Port is a number from 1 to 65535 that an inbound server listens on. These ports vary based on server configuration. Well-known ports for email servers include SMTP at 25, SMTPS at 465, and MSA at 587.

Preference: Preference, sometimes referred to as distance, is a value from 1 to 100. The lower the preference value, the higher the priority.

If more than one mail server is available, delivery is prioritized to servers with lower values. Using the same value will balance delivery to each server.
