    Hello,

    I need help with a question:

    I would like to add the following mx records to my domain in the ISPCONFIG DNS manager. I am given three options:

    Google gives me these to enter in MX records:

    ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. 1
    ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. 5
    ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. 5
    ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM. 10
    ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM. 10
    ASPMX4.GOOGLEMAIL.COM. 10
    ASPMX5.GOOGLEMAIL.COM. 10

    My question is: Which information should i put for each field?

    For example on the first entry: ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. 1 - Should it be like this?

    hostname = ALT1.ASPMX.L
    priority = 10
    mailserver = GOOGLE.COM

    OR


    hostname = whatever I want
    priority = 10
    mailserver = ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM

    Any help you can provide will be appreciated.

    Thanks.
