When configuring a new server, a technician requests that an MX record be created in DNS for the new server, but the record was not entered properly. Which of

A mail exchanger record (MX record) is a DNS record used by email servers to determine the name of the email server responsible for accepting email for the
For example a user sends an email to email@example.com. The sending user’s email server will query the somedomain.com DNS zone for an MX record
for the domain. The MX record will specify the hostname of the email server responsible for accepting email for the somedomain.com domain, for example,

sending mail server will then forward the email to the destination mail server.
