    Hi.
    I have some domains hosted in two different servers.

    Server1 Domian A - Main
    Server1 Domain B - Backup

    Server2 Domain A - Backup
    Server2 Domain B - Main

    The problem is that when i try to send a mail from DomainA to DomainB, the mail is delivered to the domain on the server from where it is sent.
    All the MX entry of my domains are set to Local Mail Exchanger.
    Is it the reason of this issue?
    Can i set each domain's MX Entry independently or the change will afect all domains hosted on the server?
    Lets say, is this posible?
    Server1 Domain A - Main: as Local Mail Exchanger and
    Server1 Domain B - Backup: as Remote Mail Exchanger

    Hello,

    You'd want to ensure "DomainB" is configured as the "Remote Mail Exchanger" on "Server1" in the example you provided to ensure that email to "DomainB" isn't routed locally.

    Thank you.
