Topic: Mail server FQDN and MX records

Hi!

I'm setting up iRedMail on an existing non-fresh home server and wonder if the FQDN of the computer MUST to be the same as the mx record for my domain.

If have a computer called servername.example.com must my mx record also be servername.example.com? Or can the mx record be mx.example.com?

MX record is mapped to an A record domain name, A record is mapped to an IP address, not your server hostname.
