    Hi there. I need to create a mx record for a subdomain that points to it’s self ( as required by Zimbra Collaboration Server ). What im looking for is this. I don’t believe wordpress provides the ability to set up such a record

    MailServer Preference Subdomain

    intrepid.marz.ca 10 intrepid.marz.ca

    This has already been done for voyager.marz.ca ( which is still required ) if you require an example.

    Alexanders-MacBook-Pro:~ lex$ dig mx voyager.marz.ca

    ; <<>> DiG 9.8.3-P1 <<>> mx voyager.marz.ca
    ;; global options: +cmd
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 2339
    ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

    ;; QUESTION SECTION:
    ;voyager.marz.ca. IN MX

    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    voyager.marz.ca. 14400 IN MX 10 voyager.marz.ca.

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Hi there, for which WordPress.com site and domain are you looking to set up this MX record?

    You’re correct in that there isn’t a way to set up an MX record for a subdomain on our end. Where did you set up the current MX record for intrepid.marz.ca?

    There is no current MX record for the subdomain intrepid.marz.ca. As my domain is pointed to wordpress.com I require you to set it up for me =)

    Sorry, I meant where did you set up the current MX record for voyager.marz.ca, which you pasted into your original post?

    No Problem. I believe this was provisioned after contacting support similar to how I am now.

    Thanks very much. I’ve put in a special request for this record to be created manually by our systems team. I’ll keep you posted as soon as it’s done.
