Secondary MX Record


#1

I just recently engaged a secondary, external DR mail service. I have an internal exchange server. I host my DNS on the Peplink Balance 580. I am trying to figure out how to configure a secondary MX record. My domain is o-n.com. My primary mail server is email.o-n.com. The new DR external secondary mail server address is sys2.mxsave.com. If someone can give me precise step-by-step, I would appreciate it.
When I try to add it in Network>DNS Settings>Domain Names>MX Records, I get this error:

“Host already defined. Duplicated host is not allowed”

Hi,

For pointing to external DNS you need to add a dot “.” at the end.
Please take a look at the following Peplink knowledgebase http://www.peplink.com/knowledgebase/unable-to-refer-a-dns-record-to-a-foreign-domain/
